Boys and girls reading books in a circle in the library

October highlights to ask your child about:

1st Grade: First time checking out special collections and enjoying as many Eric Rohmann books as we can
2nd Grade: Writing to our Pen Pals from Wood Oaks
All Grades: Flashlight reading in the dark for Halloween

Eric Rohmann - Author Visit

In preparation for our author visit on Tuesday, November 12th, all grades have been enjoying books by award winning author and illustrator Eric Rohmann. He will be presenting on his artistic background and inspiration as well as his writing process. Though our book order has already been sent in, it is not too late to send or purchase your own copy of an Eric Rohmann book for signing. Please send all books in by Friday 11/8!

Checkouts

  • Kindergarten students have started checking out books from displays and the tops of the shelves. Starting in early November, kindergarteners will start checking out two books at a time.
  • First graders are now checking out two books a week from the bookshelves in most sections of our library. They have also started checking out from our Vox and Playaway audiobook collections, which they will have sole checkout privileges for through November.
  • Second graders are now checking out two books a week with the help of shelf markers in all sections of the library. Only they will be able to check out magazines, pop-up books and 3-D books through November.
  • All special collections items should be coming home and returned in special bags. Please make sure that audiobooks are powered off when not in use to maximize battery life. These items are very fragile and expensive, and we appreciate your help with maintaining their condition!
