It's Towel Day!

Are you a Fan of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?  If so, you might want to show your love by bringing your towel with you everywhere today.  Yes, May 25th is Towel Day, in honor of Douglas Adams.  I brought my towel to the library today and used it to help me unpack all the fabulous new books we got!!

Congratulations Boscos Winners!

In an earlier post it was announced that Bosco's was having a manga art contest.  Well, the winners have been announced, and the second place winner in the middle school black and white division was none other than Goldenview's Becca Padrick!  Congratulations Becca!  In the high school division there were two former Goldenview winners: Victor Gonzalez in the black and white category, and Claire Underwood in the colored category.

Summer Reading!

Summer is here, and what are you going to do with all that free time?  How about read a great book?  If you're not able to travel outside this summer, you can at least travel to far off places, times and even planets in a book!  Not sure what to read?  Then check out our list of great summer reads!

If you can't get enough reading, and you want to have an excuse to read even more, then check out this reading endurance challenge!  How much can you read in 48 hours?  How many books?  See how much you can read on the weekend of June 4-6, and then write about it on a blog, Twitter or probably even updates on FaceBook!  I'll post at least one blog entry right here on this blog.

Have a great summer reading!

It was a busy year!

Dear Students,

You have kept Ms. Roohi and Ms. Bear very busy this year!  From the first day of school until now you have checked out 12,676 books!  That averages out to 16 books per student!  By way of comparison last year we only checked out 9,579 books, so you are a group of huge readers! 

Keep those library books coming back, we still have 146 books out as of Wednesday afternoon!

And if  you're wanting to know what books to read for summer, stay tuned and we'll post a list here, along with news of a fun reading challenge in June!

Sincerely, Your Friendly Neighborhood Librarian

The End is Nigh!

The good news: school is almost over!  The bad news: all the books need to return to the library before you can leave for the summer!  So this Wednesday is the last day to check out books, and all books are due back in the library on Friday the 7th.  Overdue notices will be printed twice this week so you can start looking for what you have checked out.  Clean up your room and dig those books out from under your bed!
