Practice, practice, practice...

This week in the library, students will be practicing library procedures. The 4th and 5th graders are already pros at self checkout, and I am positive that the 3rd graders will be just as great in no time!

The students have gotten off to a great start this year with their reading, and I have already seen LOTS of eager readers taking AR tests! Keep up the great work!

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to school, and welcome back to the library!

I am so excited about all of the great things that Smithville Elementary students are going to do in the library this year!

This week we'll be reviewing our library policies and procedures and checking out books for the first time this year. Third graders will be learning about the library from our library mascot, the bookworm. Here's the presentation they'll be seeing during their specials time this week:

The fourth and fifth graders, who have used our library before, will be playing a matching game to refresh their memories about library rules and procedures.

Have a great first week of school, everyone!
