Poetry in the Library
It's time for a little poetry! Get your creative juices flowing with this giant version of refrigerator magnet poetry. Stop by the library today to write your own.
The final book fair of the school year begins Friday, April 1 and runs through April 7. Visit the fair during school in the library or bring your parents with you on the night of Parent-Teacher conferences (April 4).
Check out the book fair homepage for information on how to set up an eWallet so you do not need to bring money to school, to shop online, or to checkout the fair flyer. See you at the fair! Keep reading!
Happy Twin Day - One Day Late!
The selection of free books is growing! How do you get one? Select a Free Book coupon next time you're trading in a PRIDE Card. Then come to the library to trade in the coupon and choose a book.
One lucky reader can choose an autographed copy of A Bird Will Soar by Alison Green Myers. Ms. Myers was one of our visiting author-readers on World Read Aloud Day. Her book is the winner of this year's Schneider Family Book Award which honors authors & illustrators for the artistic expression of the disability experience for children & young adults.
Check out the amazing list of authors who will visit us at Point on Wednesday for World Read Aloud Day. The schedule is included in this slideshow. Ask your teachers if you can come to the library or tune in from their classrooms.
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!
