BOOK RETURNS

Please return all library books the first week of school.


We got some great new books and would LOVE for you to be able to check new books out.

BOOK RETURNS AND SUMMER CHECK OUT

As we are getting closer to the end of the school year, please be aware that

all books (library books, textbooks, class novels)

must be returned by Friday, June 4th.

The end of the school year and summer vacation is just around the corner. This means it is time to return all your books and get library books to read over the summer. It is the perfect time to pick up a good book - strictly for enjoyment or to practice newly acquired reading skills.


Studies show that children and teens who read during the summer are better prepared for school in the fall. Also, reading for fun results in significant

gains in vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.


The library is again offering returning AISZ students the opportunity to borrow library books over the summer holiday starting June 11th. The students can check out up to 30 books for the summer and should return them during the first week of school. Any lost or damaged books must be paid at their replacement cost.

PROCEDURE FOR RETURNING BOOKS:

  • Library books, textbooks, and class novels need to be returned in one of the designated book drops located in our libraries, no later than Friday, June 4th.

  • If you need a reminder of which books you currently have checked out, you can always email library@aisz.hr or login to the library catalog and check under My Info.


PROCEDURE FOR CHECKING OUT LIBRARY BOOKS FOR THE SUMMER:

  1. Return all library books to the school, no later than Friday, June 4th.

  2. Fill out the Library Summer Check-Out Form (up to 30 books) no later than Thursday, June 10th.

  3. The form needs to be filled out separately for each child regardless of whether they are in Lower School or Upper School.

  4. Please note that you will not be able to check out summer books if all of your previously checked-out books are not returned.

BANNED BOOKS WEEK (Sept. 27 – Oct. 3)

Banned Books Week (September 27 - October 3, 2020) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

Take a look at our displays to find more info on that and maybe you'll even find a (banned book) for yourself too!

Story Map walk-through Banned Books

This interactive map helps you discover why some of the books have been banned or challenged throughout our history.
