If your student is interested in trying out for Battle of the Books, please have them read the following books over Fall Break. (These are just two out of 10 books they will be competing with.) They can read and re-read them as much as they would like. There will be a very detailed test following Fall Break to see if they make it into the club and competitions. I can only have 7 per team, so this will sort out who will be allowed to join the club.

FYI- I have very limited copies of these books in the NRE library, so I would ask that you check the public library, ask friends, or purchase your own copies.


3/4th grade will read:

5/6th grade will read:

  • Our digital library is always open—and it's been enhanced to accommodate more digital checkouts (now up to 12 borrows per month) and less wait time (decreased ratio of holds to copies, now just 3:1).

  • You may Skip the Line on OverDrive and through the Libby app for instant checkout of items, similar to Your Lucky Day items in our branches. And you'll see that familiar shamrock.

  • You may also access a variety of digital library perks, from audio-guided workouts, to crafting classes, to online learning and more.

  • Those who do not currently have a DCL library card can get instant access to our digital collection with a digital library card through OverDrive's Instant Digital Card and Hoopla's Engage.

  • Join us for Virtual Storytime fun and activities! Library staff will lead songs, rhymes, reading and fingerplays to keep nurturing those all-important emerging reading skills.

  • Virtual Storytime also is available through Storyblocks, a project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL).

Students must have this form filled out by a parent (each year) before they are allowed to check out any YA books.

To read E-Books, use audio books, here is how you can get into the NRE Digital Library and place holds:

Sign On Information:

You will use your universal sign on to get access.

The Universal sign on is usually:

For Example, Mary Peck would be PECKML and Dcsd123456

I will also be available to provide Grades K-3 with your User name and password if it doesn’t work as our instructions say. (The older grades use their universal sign on’s often so they should know them) There are times when the user name will have a number associated with it.

Book FAIR Classroom Donations/EWallets: I always get asked about donating books to your student's classroom. For those that would like to donate, you can either grab a book from the teacher bins located on the shelves at the book fair, or you can ask your teacher if they have set up an ewallet and you can donate to your classroom with an amount you choose. At the end of the week, your teacher will shop with the balance. E-Wallet info video

Book Fair Student Wish Lists: This Friday and the following Monday, all the students will have an opportunity to have a preview of the book fair where they can make a Wish List. This way you can see what they like and talk to them about a budget or if you will be participating in the book fair at all. Great way to get ideas for the holidays! Wish List
