Classes will be coming in to preview books the first three days, so please look for your children to be coming home with their "Wish Lists" containing some of the wonderful titles we will have available.  The Friday before the fair we will be sending home flyers, so don't forget to check their "Friday Folders" that weekend for a glimpse of some of the great books you will find at the fair!

Polton is also having an online Book Fair through Scholastic which runs from November 2-15 . This is a great way for you, or your extended family, to buy books not found at our in-house Book Fair.

Letter from the Librarian
        

Hello, my name is Leslie Feldman, and I would like to welcome you to the Polton Community Elementary library's web-page.  As the librarian at Polton, I am so happy to be back again this year, and to have the opportunity once again to share my passion for books and reading with our wonderful students!

Books are the foundations to learning and imagination.  Statistics have shown that students who read, or are read to daily, will become more successful learners.  Our library is vital to building these foundations, giving students those critical tools which inspire learning.  From "Are We There Yet" to "Using Math to be a Zoo Vet," there is something here that will appeal to everyone!

At Polton Elementary we are a community of readers!  From our "Everybody Books," Biography, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Multicultural selections, there is a bevy of books for students to choose from. We are constantly adding new award winning and high-interest books to Polton's collection with a particular focus on multicultural titles.  It has been a very exciting and rewarding endeavor – one which actively reflects Polton's mission of achieving excellence and equity.

With our new additions, Polton has nearly 15,000 books available to our students, and their families.  If you would like to help your child become more successful learners by choosing books you can read with them at home, we would LOVE to have you come in and check-out!  We can set you up with your own library patron account.  We also have a selection of books on parenting you might like to browse through.

Please take a look at the additional information on our library page regarding library hours, class check-out days, requesting eBooks, upcoming book fairs, volunteering, and any important announcements.  For online resources, you can take a look at the Technology page on Polton's website.   As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

Thanks so much for helping our kids become better readers, and consequently, life-long learners!  It's a privilege to be sharing in your child's learning as a part of Polton's caring community.

Sincerely,

Leslie Feldman, Librarian

During the student's library time, we enjoy reading a book that is thematic, topical, or just plain fun.  Time allowing, we will discuss the selection. The students are encouraged to be "book reviewers," putting into words what it is they like, or don't like about a book.  It's inspiring, seeing how animated they get about a topic, character, or situation!  In addition to being thoughtful about the books, they are also urged to be thoughtful with them, making sure they keep the books "healthy."

The kids are always enthusiastic about library, and the opportunity to borrow books each week.  In order for your child to check out a book, they must be sure to turn in their books every week (2 weeks if they are enjoying a chapter book).  If they have any overdue books, or owe a replacement fee for a lost book(s), they must return them, or make sure to pay their lost book fee in order to check out additional titles.  So please, help us keep those books coming in!

Additionally, borrowing books gives us an excellent way to help your child learn responsibility.  Please help your child learn this important lesson by making sure they have their book(s) returned to the library the day BEFORE they come to library.  One trick I try to teach them is that by keeping their books in their backpacks when they're not reading them, they can always be sure to have them at school.  However, please make sure they're not next to a water bottle.  We've had too many great books destroyed this way!

We appreciate your support. 

Thanks so much for your help in getting our books back home
and
HAPPY READING!

! VOLUNTEERING !

I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout-out to some very special people.  We are very fortunate to have some very experienced library volunteers who have been invaluable in keeping our library running smoothly.  We couldn't do it without you!!!
