Students Are Not The Only Ones Summer Reading!!!

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

–Oscar Wilde

While summer is definitely a time to relax, have fun and enjoy some down time, students are also required to do their summer reading. While I always hope that everyone reads because they WANT to, I know this is not always the case! Hopefully most students found some good books they enjoyed this summer. We want to let students know they are not the only ones who were reading this summer. Thus, the annual Staff Summer Reading Display is up in the library! Each year we ask staff members to share what they have read over the summer. We include the complete list of books from each teacher, along with the books displayed if we own them. Many teachers like to include a few lines about the book. This is one of our most popular displays as it sparks a lot of conversation not just from the students but between staff members as well. It is a great way to get to know each other when you can talk about a book you have both read. In addition the students love to see what their teachers have read and will often choose a book because a teacher they admire has read it.
Welcome Back Display to Greet Students and Staff in the Library!

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.
