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

Get Your Ticket to “Read”!

Lincoln Elementary School will host its annual book fair beginning Thursday, October 23, 2014 until Thursday, October 30, 2014. The fair will be held in the school library during regular school hours.  Parents are encouraged to support our reading initiative by helping us reach our goal, which is to sell 431 books. For every book sold, the library will be able to earn free books for our school collection. This means that our students will have more opportunities to read exciting stories throughout the school year!

On Thursday, October 30, 2014, the book fair will be open during Parent/Teacher Conferences. Please feel free to stop by the book fair in the library.
