About the Library
I know you have been wondering about returning those library books, and at last, we have an answer!
During packet pick-up, which is currently taking place from 9-3 on Fridays, there will be a bin available at the curb where you can drop off books. If you can put them in a large zip-loc or a grocery bag before putting it in the bin, that would be helpful. But rest assured, the books will be quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours before they are checked in and returned to the shelves. We will continue having the bin available every Friday, so if you need some time to round up those books, no problem! And if you are still reading something and would like to keep it a while longer, that's ok too. I definitely want to get the books back, but I also want my students and their families to have things to read.
Speaking of that, 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.
Let me leave you with another quote. This one is from the Newbery winning book, Hello, Universe, by Erin Entrada Kelly: "If you didn’t have bad things, you wouldn’t have good things. They would all just be things. Did you ever think about that?" This quarantine will end eventually, and think how much more we will all appreciate little things like just being able to go to the movies or grab a bite to eat or hang out with our friends.
