“You are never alone when lost in the magic of a book” - Marie Lu
The world has looked a lot different lately and has been filled with many unknowns. In a time when social distancing has limited our ability to interact with others, this quote reminds us that we are never alone when we are reading. Books help us to escape our daily worries, allow us to see the world around us through another’s eyes, and helps us find ourselves in what we read. No matter what this school year brings, we know that reading will continue to play a vital role for our Ambassadors.
This school year brings a renewed focus on literature and read-alouds, and all the great discussions that follow. Reading opens doors for discussions on social-emotional topics, diversity, empathy, and so much more.
We will be following similar safety guidelines as the public library in order to allow students to browse the bookshelves and check out books each week. If you would like more information about our safety precautions, please feel free to get in touch with me!
Because many books will be circulated through the library media center this year, please encourage your child to assume responsibility in caring for the books he or she checks out. If a book is lost or damaged, it will be the responsibility of the child and his or her family to pay for replacing it. We can set up a payment plan if needed.
It’s also easy to browse our library’s collection and request books online. You will need your child’s 10-digit SSID (state ID) and last name to login and request books, but you may browse our collection without logging in. We have lots of great resources available for students to read and research online as well; please check out the library webpage. Feel free to reach out if you need help with logging on or usage.
I am so looking forward to welcoming your children back to the library and helping them to grow as readers, researchers, and thinkers.
