It's Wednesday! What's happening in the Sommer Library?

Mrs. Woodul and Ms. Margocs really do like getting new books for the library!

We get new books in lots of different ways.  The library gets an annual budget from the school district based on the number of students we have.  The books above are some that were bought with those funds.

We also pull some books from the Scholastic Book Fairs and add them to our collection, using our Scholastic Dollars to pay for them.  Here's what we pulled this fall:

We will be receiving new sets of some of our well-loved series very soon, thanks to the generosity of our PTA!  Pictures will be posted as soon as they arrive!

Remember, you can help our library collection grow by purchasing a birthday book for $15!  Just fill out the form here:

Last Thursday, Ms. Margocs kept track of classes and visitors to our library for Texas Library Snapshot Day.  She will be sharing the information with our district Library Services, who will report to administrators to show just how essential our libraries are in our schools.

This was our schedule last week!
This week, we are still reviewing nonfiction text features with second graders, discussing genres and Bluebonnet Award Nominees with third through fifth graders, and reading Halloween Pie by Michael O. Tunnell with our kindergarteners. 

Tomorrow is our annual Coins for Coats Drive!  The money we collect helps to buy coats for students in need right here in Round Rock ISD.  Bring your change to support a great cause!  The class with the highest contribution from each grade level wins flashlight time in the library!

Thank you to all the volunteers who have visited our library this week to shelve books and restore order to well-loved sections!
