Library Notes
Here’s just a trinity of thought I’ve gleaned from research related to why your school librarian enjoys students reading the physical book over the e-books. First off, books aren’t just visual, they’re physical. When trying to remember a piece of information, people more readily recall where in a physical book the info appeared. Second, books (except from our library) are super customizable. You can underline, dog ear, scribble in the margin: these are all tactile ways of interacting with a book. And third, books send signals. Think of what a book’s length and weight are implicitly telling you when you hold it in your hands: you’re going to learn lots from me, but you’re going to have to invest some time and effort. That said, in this electronic age, let us still celebrate the physical book.

Basketball
Calling all parents….Catch the Viking fever and become a Girls A or B basketball coach. If you are interested in this great opportunity, please contact the office, Mrs. Watsabaugh.
Thank You and God Bless,
Ms. Vilardo, Athletic Director

Library:Housekeeping
Not surprising with my attention focused on other book-related endeavors, the dust has collected on our reminder efforts regarding overdue books. And, as excited as we are to have students borrow books, we have to remember that others also want to read those books that have not been returned in timely manner. Accordingly, please look for a letter of reminder in your family envelope if your student has overdue books, per our records. Also, if students believe that the books were already returned, they are invited to help me find the book in the library in order to correct our records. Remember there is no late fee, only a replacement charge if lost or irreparably damaged. As always, thanks for your understanding and support.

Library/Book Fair Notes
By the time you read this, the library will have been back in operation for your students after last week’s Book Fair hiatus. Most notably, though, is the gratitude we have for your support of our annual Book Fair. Your efforts enabled us to: meet our total sales target of $4800, provide your student with reading encouragement, enhance the book collections of your student’s classroom and the school library, and benefit our school’s general fund. But in addition to your purchases, I am extremely thankful for those SBS parents, family members, and staff who helped make the Book Fair successful, from set-up through pack-up. Indeed, it takes a village.

We continue to add to our collection, especially with donations of books. As we indicated at Back to School Night, if unable to use a donated item, we’ll make it available to others. Looking ahead: Beyond promoting new acquisitions, we will be displaying books in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month and, of course, after Fall Festival we have our annual Book Fair, Sunday, Oct. 11th through Thursday, October 15th. This is another service hours opportunity, as volunteers are always needed. Look for info in future family envelope mailings and on the school website.
