Enjoy our awesome freshwater fish tanks as you visit us in the library! These were provided to us by the Harvey Oaks PTO and are taken care of by Mr. Joel Klemm. What a great addition to our fabulous library!

     

What to Expect in Library and Technology

We are excited to have your child(ren) in our library and technology classes!

 

Here is a little information about what to expect. Please let us know if you have any questions at any time!

 

Students will come down to the library once a week for a combination class where they will check out books and work on a variety of technology skills. We will also work with them on integrated projects in their classrooms or in the technology lab.

 

When books are checked out, students may keep them for up to two weeks. If they would like to have them longer, they can recheck them out from the library for an additional 2 weeks. Sometimes books get damaged or lost. Don’t worry! Just let us know right away. Sometimes a damaged book can still be saved. However, if it can’t be saved, it is our district policy for families to replace lost or damaged books by paying for them. Also, if a book is not returned on time it is considered “overdue”. When students have an overdue book, they may look at books in the library until their overdue book has been returned or paid for. Please encourage your child(ren) to find a special spot for their library books at home to keep them safe. Students can also come down to the library at any time during their school day to check out books, as long as they have permission from their classroom teacher.

 

Golden Sower Nominees


Each year, the Golden Sower Committee in Nebraska nominates 10 books in 3 different categories for children to read and vote for. The award is called the Golden Sower Award. In order for students to qualify to vote, they must read at least 4 titles. Voting takes place April of each year and only students may vote (no adults)! For students in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade, the titles will be read during our class time together. For students in 4th grade, 2 titles will be read as a read-aloud with their classroom teacher and 2 will need to be read on their own. Fifth graders will be required to read 4 titles on their own. Students in 4th and 5th grades that challenge themselves read all 10 titles by January will be invited to join our Golden Sower Quiz Bowl Club. Have your child ask for more information if they are interested!
