Hi to all Smith Readers!!! The Smith Library has a lot of exciting things happening this year. Stop by the library to get the latest 39 clues books or Rick Riordan's newest novel, The Red Pyramid.
Bluebonnets are in bloom and available for checkout starting Tuesday, September 7. Good luck to all of our third, fourth, and fifth graders participating in the program!
Kinder, first and second graders can participate in a program of their own this October. Check out a Caldecott Award Winning book and draw a picture to go with the story. Mrs. Pelias will put your artwork on display in the Caldecott Wall of Fame in the library.
The Cabinet of Wonders will be the shared book at the 5th grade after school book club that begins on September 10, 2010. Students must have a signed permission slip to attend. Bring a copy of the book and a snack to enjoy. See permission slip for book dates. The book club meets every OTHER Friday.
Kindergarten students will be sharing a Take Home Backpack with their friends. Each backpack has a book and a stuffed character from the story. Students get to enjoy the character for 2 nights and then write about it in the journal, also in the backpack.
Paws and Pages will be new to first graders this fall. Each first grade classroom will have a stuffed puppy friend from the library to take home. The student may keep the puppy for a WEEK to read aloud their favorite stories. Reading aloud to a non-judgmental audience will help improve the student's fluency and increase their confidence in reading!
There's always something fun happening in the Smith Library! Come see us soon!!!
