School Library Program Mission Statement: The mission of the Pleasant Valley school library program is to provide an inviting, dynamic learning environment and services that support and enhance teaching, literacy, learning and the appreciation and enjoyment of literature.
What's new in the library?
Sunny summer days are just around the corner! It is our goal for Cody students to maintain their literacy skills they have acquired this year, while becoming life-long lovers of reading! In order to avoid the “Summer Slide,” we have established “Summer Reading Challenge 2018!” Read more about the challenge HERE!
Bettendorf and LeClaire libraries are hosting great summer reading programs:
"This summer find out why the library rocks! Sign up for the reading program online using the new app or at the Youth Services Desk starting Monday, June 4. There is a program for all ages. Log your reading through the app or pick up a reading log at the desk. Half‐way and finishing prizes will be awarded for those who finish by Saturday, July 28. Additional drawings will be held for those who complete the program on time as well."

We had lots of fun that was funny during Read Across America Week!
We've been connecting literature to our creative brains lately, and the outcome has been fantastic! After reading The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires , students worked together to create a "magnificent thing."
Author and illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi has started "broken crayon art," and the idea has taken off! We read Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis for inspiration, looked at some of Debbie's creations, and created some broken crayon art of our own!
