LETTERS FROM THE LIBRARY

SEPTEMBER 2015

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Back to school time is in full swing! Mrs. Gylys and Mrs. Pattin have been busy getting the library ready for the start of a new school year. This year, Mrs. Gylys will be working every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday while Mrs. Pattin will work Tuesday and Thursday. Kindergarteners through fourth graders will have regular library times with Mrs. Gylys. DLC students, preschoolers, and fifth graders will see Mrs. Pattin for library each week. Both teacher-librarians will continue to see ALL students for activities outside of regularly scheduled library visits. We’re looking forward to another awesome year at Garfield Elementary!

SNOOPY IS HONORARY CHAIR FOR LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH 2015!

During the month of September, we are once again reminding all members of the Garfield community to sign up for a public library card!  Our local Timberland Regional Library came to talk to fifth graders about signing up for a card. The public library has many great resources to offer. From downloading free music and movies to checking out books and participating in fun events, the public library has it ALL!

To sign up, visit any Timberland Regional Library location, stop by the Garfield Library, or click the link below to pull up the form.

HELP US BUILD A LIBRARY TO LOVE

Each year, the library loses many books to well-meaning patrons. We also find many books that need to be replaced due to wear and tear. Funding for the library is very small compared to the need we have to keep up with student and teacher demand.

This is a reminder that if at any time you would like to help the whole school by donating books, we would love for you to take a look at our Amazon Wish List.

Interested in donating? Here’s how:

1. Click the link.

2. Browse through the books, make your choice(s), add them to your shopping cart, and proceed to checkout. At this point you either sign in or create an account. You will be asked to select a shipping address. Select Garfield Elementary.

3. Click the box “Ordering a gift?” By doing this, you will have an opportunity to write a free gift note.

4. Congratulate yourself on helping to grow our school library! Your purchase benefits the entire Garfield community. Select your payment option and place your order. Your purchase will be sent directly to the Garfield School Library.

Alternatively, please keep the library in mind when cleaning out your bookshelves. Donations of gently used books are always appreciated.  

Thank you for considering donating to our lovely library!
