Library News
A huge thank you to all who visited the Book Fair.  It is wonderful to see our students excited about books!  It is especially fun to see our visitors on Grandparent/Grandperson Day.  I feel like I'm greeting old friends.  The funds we receive from the Book Fair are used to purchase new books for the library so thank you for your support.

Our library year is well underway.  Each class visits the library once a week and as long as students return their books, they can check out new ones.

Are you aware that the Adams County Library Bookmobile visits our school?  The bookmobile comes once every three weeks.  Students must have their library card to check out books there.  The bookmobile will be here from 1:45 to 2:30 on the following Tuesdays:  October 13th, November 3rd and 24th, and December 15th.

Do you know we have e-books available through the library?  There are only eight right now.  They are easy to access;
  go to      http://my.abdodigital.com

  Password is SFXCS

There are links and videos within the e-books.  Please use them and let me know what you think about them.  There's only eight but it's a start and I need to know if this is a feature you would like to see expanded.  I am trying to learn more about e-books and if they would benefit our library.

Our school library's card catalog is also online:

Both of these websites are available from wherever you access the internet!!
    
  Thanks,
