Library

 

Dear St. Luke Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Your child will be coming to library class every week.  Children in grades 1-8 will soon begin to check out books from the school library.

Students may check out one book at a time.  The book must be returned the following library class before another book is allowed to be taken out.  If a book is damaged or lost you will be responsible to pay for the cost of replacement for the book in new condition.  When your child brings the book home, spend time reading it together. If your child can read, listen to him or her read the book and help with words they may not know. For older children, ask them about the books they’ve borrowed and whether or not they enjoyed them. We want your child to love reading, so please make the time you share books together fun. 

You can help your child by:
· Finding a safe place for his or her library books away from little brothers/sisters and family pets.
· Remind your child to have clean hands when handling the book and to turn pages gently.
· Encourage your child to read for enjoyment and to notice/discuss the illustrations with you.
· Read and reread the book as well as discuss favorite characters and important parts of the story.

*Remind your children that they have a responsibility to return the books they borrow so that other students can enjoy them as well. 

*For older children, try recommending your favorite book to them to help motivate them to try reading something new.

I look forward to a great year and many wonderful stories. If you have any questions or concerns about the library, please feel free to write a note addressed to me, email me at sbarry@slswhitestone.org or, contact the school office at 718-746-3833.                

Happy Reading!!https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQBpweo1lI4MGjORqNzpbvVYlBgbN-9v92RrHzNhPZwN5YUUS73ODdUohUK
