Welcome to the 2011-12 school year! I’m looking forward to an exciting year in the library and computer lab. As many of you know, this year we are integrating our library and computer programs. The kids will still be checking out books, but we’ll also be learning how to find, evaluate, create, and share different kinds of information online.
All of our students visit the library and/or lab once a week. K and 1st grade students check out one book at a time and must return their book in order to check out another. All other students may check out 2 books at a time. Students are welcome to stop by the library after school to return or check out books. In addition to normal school hours, the library is open from 3:00 – 3:15-ish daily. Please remember this time is for book exchange. If your child is waiting to be picked up, they need to wait outside on the yard or in the office.
The library is also open to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders during lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In a month or two, I’m planning to have the lab open during lunch one day a week.
If you’d like to help out in the library or lab this year, you can contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or talk to your child’s teacher. Finally, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or ideas.
