Last Regular Library Week

Sadly, the Lindero Library must close for the school year on Friday, June 6. Please be sure to finish and return all your books and take all your AR quizzes by that date. After June 6, please take advantage of your public library for great reading options over the summer.

Before school ends, I will post a list of suggested summer reading ideas on the Lindero Library website. Please plan to do lots of reading over the summer! Incoming seventh graders can get extra credit in their language arts classes for summer reading, and both incoming seventh and eighth graders can take AR quizzes on their summer reading books in the fall.

Back to Normal

The book fair is now over at the Lindero Library, so we are get back to normal library business. Don't forget, though, that you can still shop at Barnes & Noble with one of our coupons (or just tell them it is a Lindero Book Fair purchase) through Monday.

The year is rapidly drawing to a close, but we are still getting in some great new books. Come by and check them out!

Book Fair This Week!

The library had a wonderful author event with our terrific guest author, Lisa Yee, last week. All the students who attended the assembly, workshops, and book signing gave her rave reviews. Many thanks to our PFC for funding this great experience for our students.

This week, the library is morphing into a Barnes & Noble book store as we enjoy our great annual book fair. We have a large, customized selection provided by our local Barnes & Noble in the Promenade. The book fair will be open at Lindero Monday - Thursday. We open at 8:30 A.M. before school, and remain open until 3:30 P.M. We will also be open during Open House night from 6:30 - 9 P.M. The book fair will continue at Lindero until Thursday at 1 P.M. In addition to buying great books for yourself, consider purchasing gifts and items from teachers' classroom wish lists.

You can also shop at Barnes & Noble in the Promenade any time until May 26, and your purchases will count towards our book fair profits. Be sure to take a flyer or tell the cashier it is Lindero book fair purchase. In fact, you can shop at any Barnes & Noble, if you give the cashier our book fair number: 286062. All the profits from the book fair support our library program.

The Lindero Library is pleased to have completed installation of our new library catalog software. The catalog is now available online from anywhere on campus at Lindero. We hope to have it available off-site very soon. Please check it out while you are in the library or anywhere on campus!

We are looking forward to our author visit with Lisa Yee on Wednesday, May 14. Students who read one of her books will be receiving an invitation to the assembly in the gym during Period 2. We also invite all Lindero parents to the assembly. Students who read two or more books are invited to a workshop during Period 3 or Period 6. Students who purchased one of her books are invited to the booksigning during Period 7.
