Summer Reading!


As the end of the year approaches, we begin to think about the summer. June Atkinson, our state Superintendent has sent a letter regarding the "Give Five, Read Five" program where schools collect books to send home with students to read over the summer.  This year there is a new component to this initiative called myON reader provided by Capstone.  This online reader gives students access to digital content over the summer.  We have signed up and are working to create the accounts for all K-5 Students, there will be a future blog post with directions for accessing.  However, I wanted to give you a heads up so you could begin to consider how you will share this information with your staff and students.  Here is the link to the list of books titles that have been shared with me if you would like to look at them.  If any Middle School or High School would like to participate as well, just let me know by Friday, April 22.
Check out this great opportunity coming next week: Creating a Global Media Center from World View.  If you can't make that one, there are others in the summer to explore.


April is School Library Media Month - this is a great time to share with your staff what your vision of your program and all the great things happening in your media center! Thanks for all you do!

Happy Monday!
