Welcome to the Pleasant Hill Library!
Your child will have the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of books one day each week in our Media Center. Here are some suggestions and information to help you and your child with this library experience.
You can help develop a love of reading by enjoying the books with your child. Many of the books for primary aged children are best enjoyed by you reading them to your child. Other books that your child picks may be at the appropriate reading level, so encourage your student to read to you, but you can also share read, to show him your enthusiasm. Spend time with the television off so that you may enjoy reading together.
Please remind your child to have clean hands and avoid snacks when reading library books, use a bookmark to mark her place, and turn the page from the upper left hand corner.
Help your child find a specific place to keep the library book. It’s a good idea to return it to his backpack after it’s been read.
Please make sure your child’s younger siblings do not write, color, or rip our library books. Damaged books must be paid for.
Remind your child to return books on time. Books need to be returned before new ones are checked out. Check out days for classes are as follows:
Monday Classes Friday Classes
This year there are 2 Scholastic Book Fair’s scheduled. The first is the week of November 13. This is a great time to shop for Christmas. The second Book Fair is the week of February 19. For each book fair your student will have a chance to make out a wish list. Teachers also make out wish lists for their classrooms so be sure to check those out too.
