Now is a great time to add to your home library, get a jump on holiday shopping, and support our school library all at the same time! Click here to go to the online library book fair. Enter the code M5KK6 and start shopping. The fair closes November 21 so get your orders in before 11:59 PM on that day. Books will be delivered to school after the fair closes and distributed during homeroom.
Please contact Mrs. Wilding if you have any questions!
Happy shopping and happy reading!
The first-ever Prairie Point Book eFair is coming soon! You will be able to get an early start on holiday shopping while at the same time building your home library and the school library. The fair officially begins on November 8th, but you can start browsing at bit.ly/PointFair2020. Check this space for more details as fair time gets closer!
With the magic of green screen technology, you can transport yourself into your book and help promote the #PointREAD25 challenge at the same time. Check out these directions!
The Global Read Aloud invites people all around the world to read the same book and connect with others far and wide. Point Library invites you to join us. Here's how:
Can you read 25 books this school year? I bet you can! Join in the reading fun and challenge yourself to read more with the #PointREAD25 Reading Challenge.

Along the way we will have activities and groups, special incentives, and many opportunities to celebrate our success. Stay tuned!
For at least the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, students will not be coming to the library to browse and check out books. Instead, students will put books that they would like to read on hold and the library staff will deliver the books to the students. Please watch this video for a demonstration of how that process will work. Let me know if you have questions.
If you prefer written directions, you can access those here.
There are many new ebooks and audiobooks available now for checkout & download from the Point Library catalog (Follett Destiny). You will need to login in order to checkout a book. Use your Prairie username & password. Did you forgot what that is? Contact Mrs. Wilding via email if you need help!
Maybe you feel like it's been summer for a while because we have been apart for long. But summer is only beginning and we will not be back at school for quite a while.
Reading in the summer (and always) can take multiple paths -- audiobooks, print books, ebooks, magazines, DIY projects, and much more. The image above contains many links to resources that will help you Blaze a New Trail this summer.
Keep reading! Contact Mrs. Wilding if you have questions about how to access resources or suggestions for new books or resources to purchase! We will be adding new ebooks and audiobooks in early July.
Enjoy your summer and we'll see you next fall!
Starting this week, Point students can request up to 5 books from the library and pick them up at the curb in front of Point on Thursday between 4 and 6. So search the catalog and request books today. See this form for details. [Update: Curbside Pickup is not available during the summer months.]
We hope that we are able to get back to school as soon as possible after April 30 but in the meantime we are fortunate to have access to many audiobooks and ebooks to keep us engaged and entertained. Check out these options!
