A big thank you to everybody who donated money and made purchases from this year's book fair. The fair was a big success! Not only were students able to purchase books to keep, we were able to add many new books to the library & classroom libraries at Point. We will continue to purchase new books with the proceeds throughout the coming year so watch for new books to appear in our online catalog.
The Book Fair is back in-person this year, yeah! Check it out November 29 - December 3 in the library during school (7:30 AM - 3:00 PM). Also, rather than bringing money to school, your parents or guardians can create an eWallet for you and add money for you to spend at the fair. Check out this video to get started with eWallet:
You can also shop at the online, companion fair starting on November 29 and going through December 12. Books ordered online will be mailed to your house.
Here's a link to the book fair homepage. Check it out!
All proceeds from the fair will benefit the Point Library. Thank you for your support! Keep reading!

We have access to 49 magazines that will appeal to teens for leisure reading but can also be used by you for instruction. All magazines are unlimited simultaneous access so your whole class can access a single issue at the same time.
The magazine collection spans a wide range of subject areas, interests, and reading levels. There are even a few titles in Spanish. Check 'em out!
Hello Point Students - Welcome back to school! We challenge you to read as many books as you can this school year. Set a goal for yourself and strive to meet it. The 8th Grade Black Team has challenged its students to read 25 books. Can you meet that challenge too?

This year's makerspace days are strictly grab-n-go! Swing by the library to pick up a kit that includes everything you need to make a macrame keychain, a needlepoint ornament or magnet, or a beautiful origami creation with an accompanying hand-lettered poem. While supplies last!
And, for your viewing pleasure, here's a throwback to last year when we could all gather in the library to make stuff. Let's all stay safe and well and look forward to a better year next year! Happy Holidays everyone!
