Fall and Winter in the Library

posted Nov 8, 2018, 12:36 PM by Sheila Wooten-Jones

It has been a wonderful few months here at Sahuaro and we have been busy in the library.  

The library uses fiction and non-fiction book pairings when possible. Being familiar with the parts of a non-fiction book is helpful for research and information gathering so all grade levels have been learning and reviewing book parts during library visits.  

Being good library patrons helps reinforce good citizenship skills.  Students are expected to take good care of materials and return books on time. 

We begin our Lonely Book Program. Students will be able to check out a Lonely Book in addition to regular checkout.  Lonely Books are books that may not often get checked out.  The students have an opportunity to review the Lonely Book in addition to enjoying extra reading material. With the upcoming breaks having extra reading material is beneficial. 

Our annual Cornucopia Coloring Contest will run through November 16.  The contest is a highly anticipated Fall activity! All entries will be displayed in the library.

All students have access to our online portal, Destiny.  Students may put holds on books in addition to reviewing books.  The students also have access to our vetted database through Destiny.  

Share books as a family.  Reading together is a wonderful way to spend an hour each day.
