Spring has sprung at the RES Library!
The sun was shining as authors Linda Urban, Jacqueline Davies and Joe Schreiber visited Radnor Elementary to discuss their new books and promote reading. Our 4th and 5th grade students enjoyed the presentation and made us proud with their interesting questions for the authors.
Our informational books are flying off the shelves as our younger students learn the difference between fictional and non-fictional text. This has included extra book selections and library lessons focused on the shelving systems. First grade was “tech-terrific” when they started to search for books using the library computers and the Destiny Catalog.
As the kindergarteners reviewed the parts of a book we celebrated Earth Day. Our kindergarten students are ready for first grade library usage with their “Bookie Lookies” and familiarity with the Everybody Book Room.
3rd grade students worked hard learning to write a proper citation. We learned the importance of giving credit to our sources. These students collaborated in the library doing research and bookmarking.
Stop by our Library to see the many book reviews written by our 4th and 5th graders. These reviews are available online and as a “shelf talker” here in our Library. Along with the book reviews, students completed their cyber bullying lesson with a Step Up to the Line Activity. Recognizing internet advertising was our next focus. Staying safe on the internet is important for all our students.
Library circulation remains at record levels; students place some of our most popular books on hold and have been accessing great reads online via our Destiny System. View our newest selections on our website through
Destiny Quest/Resource Lists/New Titles.
Spring into reading @ your Library.
