The Book Fair is Coming

Books make great gifts. Since the holiday season is quickly approaching, consider giving the “gift of reading”.

Lincoln Elementary School will hosts its annual book fair beginning Thursday, October 22, 2015. The fair will be held in the school library during regular attendance hours. Parents are invited to attend the fair on Thursday, October 29, 2015 during Parent/Teacher Conference.

We will also host an online fair beginning Saturday, October 17, 2015 through Friday, October 30, 2015. To shop online, click here. Each purchase will help us reach our goal of 83,160 minutes of reading.

 

Get Ready to Read!

Now that the school year is upon us, it is important that students continue the practice of reading consistently. To assist students in their reading endeavors, the Lincoln Elementary School Library offers a broad range of reading materials designed to meet students’ interest levels as well as their academic needs.

Students are allowed to check out two books per week using their current Lincoln Elementary School ID cards. Students are encouraged to select books according to their AR reading levels and complete corresponding AR tests. Students are assessed a fine for lost or damaged books. In most cases, fines will cover the replacement cost of any book that has been damaged or unreturned.

Below are some recommendations from the American Library Association on helping teen students develop a greater love of reading. For more tips and recommendations, click here.

  • Lead by example: let your teen
    see you reading and visiting the
    library often
  •  Sharing books shows you care.
    Talk about what you read with
    your teen.
  • Keep plenty of books,
    graphic novels,
    magazines and
    newspapers around
    your home.
  • Empower your teens:
    let them select books that speak to
    their interests and hobbies.
  • Read stories, poems, graphic
    novels, magazines or books out
    loud together.
  • Make sure your teen has regular
    transportation to the library.
  • Provide a quiet space for reading
    in your home and set aside time
    each day for reading.
  • Give books or gift certificates to
    bookstores as gifts.
  • Listen to audio books when
    traveling.
  • Don’t forget that reading should be
    fun, as well as educational, for all
    ages. Let your teen choose some
    lighter reading that isn’t required
    for school
