Be A Library Friend

Consider buying a book in someone's honor, celebrating a special event, or just give a gift that keeps on giving. $20.00 will buy a book with a loved one's name in it. For details see Mrs. Shabluk in the library.

Lost Books

A standard replacement fee is charged for lost books.  The fee takes into consideration the cost of books, processing materials, shipping, and the time involved to prepare books for circulation.  Replacement costs are:

Fiction hardcover  $20
Non-fiction hardcover  $30
Paperback  $10
Magazine  $  5

The library would much rather have the book or magazine than the money.  Save your money and take good care of your books.

Will the winner be Tall story by Candy Gourlay?  Maybe The trouble with May Amelia by Jennifer Holm or Inside out and back again by Thanhha Lai?  How about Wild Wings by Gill Lewis?  Camo Girl by Kekla Magoon and Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver are also possibilities.  These titles have all been named as nominees for national awards.  Other titles named as notable and possible winners and available in your library collection are A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, Bluefish by Pat Schmatz, Okay for now by Gary D. Schmidt, Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick, The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens, and The fingertips of Duncan Dorfman by Meg Wolitzer. 

The ALA Youth Media Awards honor children’s and young adult authors and illustrators, as well as producers of children’s audio and video materials. Known worldwide for the high quality they represent, the ALA Youth Media Awards are selected under a cloak of secrecy by national judging committees composed of librarians and other children’s literature experts.

Visit your school library media center soon and check out a notable book.
