Rose City Park LIBRARY

Welcome to RCP's Library Page

Hello RCP Community!

Welcome back to a new, and very different, school year! Library Land has been working hard all summer to support this school year, and I am excited to share with our community how we can support Distance Learning. I have linked PPS resources, as well as some of my favorite reading websites for you to enjoy.

Our library catalog has a whole new look! Check it out here, as well as links above and below on this homepage.

Even though we are learning remotely, I can't resist adding the newest read-alouds to our collection! Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing new books during my lessons with our school community, Parents, feel free to listen in! I find children's literature to have very powerful messages, and provide a great avenue for thoughtful conversations with our students.

<---- Our newest editions support BLM and the beginning of a new school year.

Remember, I am always available to reach at eivester@pps.net.

If you want to chat about a school project / reading assignment, or want to share what you have been learning at home, please email me and we can create a google meet.

Keep Reading,

Mrs . Ivester

Exciting News!

Books will be distributed to students starting Monday, September 21st. Click on the Let's Get Reading! page for a detailed schedule and more information.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PAPER BAGS TO USE AS BOOK BAGS! UNFORTUNATELY, WE CAN'T USE CLOTH BAGS UNLESS WE WASH THEM AFTER EVERY USE. THESE BAGS WILL BE QUARANTINED ALONG WITH THE BOOKS. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING ONE OR TWO! DONATION DETAILS TO COME.

IF YOU HAVE PAPER BAGS TO DONATE, PLEASE BRING THEM WHEN YOU COME TO GET YOUR FIRST BOOK BAG.

What is SORA?

PPS Libraries will be using SORA as our online reading app.

Think of this as your virtual reading book bin! This app will be a holding place for your ebooks, class assigned ebooks, digital audiobooks and graphic novels.

SORA can also be linked to your local public library. Click the SORA icon to access your account with your Google sign-in.
