Reading Rocks!

Hello O'Bryant Primary Families!

Thanks for stopping by. Check out all the links below that I hope will help you find what you are looking for.

Our library program promotes the very best of children's literature and information resources, peppered with fun and engaging activities designed to help students engage with books. As reading is one of the most critical skills students will develop in school, I will be doing my best to get (and keep) my students "hooked on books".

OBP students visit the library once a week to listen to stories, discuss ideas and content, practice library and literacy skills and check out materials. Our beginning of the year library lessons will emphasize the idea of shared ownership of the library. We will also focus on Social and Emotional Learning, as well as proper book care, and independent navigation of the library and its resources.

Are you interested in raising a life-long reader? Start by reading WITH your child! One of the best ways families can support a child's literacy is by making reading something that families do together, and then TALKING about the words, situations and ideas found in the books you share. Even if you don't have a book to share or read together, just talking with your child about the world around you will expand the mind and inspire curiosity!

This is me, Mrs. Huffman, your campus librarian!

As the librarian at O'Bryant Primary School, I feel like the luckiest person in the district - since I have the VERY best job! Here are some things that make my job so amazing: I am surrounded by thousands of books, I get to sing and play with puppets, and I get to read aloud using funny voices. Best of all, I get to help my students wonder, question, explore, learn and grow through reading.

When I'm not at the library, you might find me hanging out with my family, playing with my dogs, digging around in my garden or tending a big herd of goats.

How to take care of borrowed books!

  • Wash your hands before reading books. Dirty fingers can leave marks on the pages.

  • Keep your library books inside. Weather can damage them.

  • Keep food and drink away from books. Water, beverages and food will damage the book.

  • Keep library books in a safe place away from babies and pets. Babies and pets often LOVE to chew on books.

  • Handle your books with care. Carry them in your backpack and don’t toss or throw the books around. (Make sure your backpack is a clean, safe, water-free place to keep your books!)

  • Turn pages by the corner; not by the middle of the page to avoid ripping.

  • Use a bookmark. Please don’t fold over the corner of a page to mark you place.

  • Remember to return your books when they are due so others may enjoy them as well. If you aren’t finished with the book, you may check it out again as long as other students aren’t waiting for it.
