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

Earlier this school year, our PTA let us know that they had surplus funds, and fielded suggestions for spending the extra money.  Ms. Margocs replied with a request to refresh our well-loved series books, and the PTA came through for our library in a BIG way!  We now have all-new sets of several series--Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries, and Geronimo Stilton.  We can't wait to get these into the hands of our students at Sommer!

We hosted the Bluebonnet Breakfast in the library this Monday!  Students who read ten (3rd grade), twelve (4th grade), and 14 (5th grade) Bluebonnet nominee books were invited to munch on donuts and play Bluebonnet Bingo for posters and books.  

The students in the last picture read all 20 Bluebonnet Nominee books!  They have been invited to compete on our campus Battle of the Bluebonnets team, and will also receive a book of their choice from next year's Bluebonnet Nominee list.  Congratulations to our super readers!

The sad news is....we won't be having regular library visits next week.  The great news is...we will be having our Spring Scholastic Book Fair!  Here's the funny "hat" that came with this season's decorating kit....
Preview Day for kindergarten, first, and second grades is Tuesday, February 14th.  Shopping hours are:
Tuesday, 2/14  2:50p-4p
Wednesday, 2/15  7:15a-4p
Thursday, 2/16  7:15a-4p
Friday, 2/17  7:15a-6p  PTA Movie Night--open late!

Remember, proceeds from the fair help pay for our author visits; Bluebonnet voting, party, and prize books; books for our literacy library; continuing education for your librarian; library supplies; and more.  Online shopping is already open, and runs through February 24th:

Thank you, Sommer PTA and families, for supporting our library program!  See you next week at the book fair!
