Library Panorama

This week we are reading four new books. Ryan T. Higgens has a new installment in his Bruce series, Santa Bruce. His grumpy bear is back in a fun and festive holiday story.  We are also reading Zeta the Poinsettia by Alma Hammond which is a charming story of hope and exploration.  Jan Brett has added another classic story to her collection of books, The Snowy Nap. We are also talking about Kwanzaa and reading Family Celebration Kwanzaa: Kwanzaa Family Poem by Angela Y. Nixon.  A special thank you to all the library volunteers for your support in 2018! I look forward to seeing everyone in 2019!  Enjoy the winter break and take some time to read!

Information About CYRM

Young Reader Medal

The California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program encourages recreational reading of popular literature among the young people of our state. Since its inception in 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the California Young Reader Medal.

CYRM is supported by the California Reading Association, the California Association of Teachers of English, California Library Association, and the California School Library Association.

Young people recommend the titles of their favorite books for nomination, or teachers and librarians note repeatedly read or requested titles, and these are submitted to the California Young Reader Medal Committee. Members of the committee read the suggested books, discuss their merits and appeal to children, and then decide upon a well-balanced list of nominees.

To be considered for nomination, a book must be an original work of fiction published within the last four years by a living author. Recommendations for nomination are due each year by April 1 for consideration as a nominee the following year. It is a two-year cycle from the time of nomination by students to the presentation of the California Young Reader medal to the winning authors and illustrators.

We LOVE our library volunteers!

Overdue Books

There are no fines for overdue books; however, students must return overdue items before new items may be checked out. Students who have overdue books are able to read books in the library, but are unable to take them home. If a book is lost or damaged it is the responsibility of the student to replace the book.
