ag00299_Welcome to our Library

Welcome back to school! Stop by to visit or to volunteer! Look for volunteer sign-up sheets to go home the first week of school. You can volunteer to read, help during book fair week, or help with library needs during class times. We love our volunteers!!!

Accelerated Reader

All students, 3rd through 8th grade, are now using AR Renaissance Place. If you are new to AR, you will be receiving a letter detailing how to access student accounts through Home ConnectHome Connect Link  Sign up for email notices so that you will know when your student takes an AR quiz!

With Home Connect, you will also have access to AR BookFinder, which will allow you
to find books and their AR levels. If you are having difficulty accessing the new Home Connect system, email me and I will try to help. You can also access AR book levels through our school catalog link. I hope that you will enjoy this new AR system as much
as I do!

Birthday Book Club

The Birthday Book Club is back! You can donate a book to the library in honor of your child’s birthday, or in memory of a loved one. Forms for the Birthday Book Club have been sent home. If you didn’t get one from your student, stop by the library to pick one up or to get more information on this wonderful program!! It’s not too late to order a birthday book for this school year!!!
