About the Library
There's been a tremendous response to our Friday book return bin. Thank you!!!
Keep in mind that there may be a lag between when you turn your books in, and when they actually get scanned into the computer. But rest assured, any books you have brought in will get checked in and removed from student accounts as soon as possible. If you've turned other things into the bin, such as public library books, classroom books, or puppet bags, I will make sure they get where they need to be.
If you still have books at home, round them up and bring them by the school any Friday through the end of the school year. The bin will be on the curb from 9-8, for the convenience of those of you who can't make it during the regular work day. If the bin is full, it's ok to place them carefully on top so long as it isn't raining, but we will do our best to make sure there is room. Thank you so much for making sure we get our library books back safely!
In the meantime, if you're lacking reading materials and don't have access to Noel Wien's ebook and audiobook collection, here is the link to sign up for their online card, followed by the link to add the Sora App to your device and begin checking out books. Continue to check back on this website as I will be reviewing ebooks and audiobooks that are available through Sora.
There is a Little Free Library at the Ken Kunkel Community Center, but if you do choose to take a book from there, please keep in mind the CDC's recommendations that soft paper can carry the virus for 24 hours, and hard covers for up to 72 hours. The best policy would be to allow the book to sit for three days before reading it.
Here's a quote for you, one that always comes to mind in spring, when we are finally looking forward to weather warm enough that we can go barefoot. "Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." ~Kahlil Gibran
