This week the library is only open 

Tuesday and Wednesday. All classes will get a chance to guess the amount of magical food in our book fair jar.
 Each grade level will have one student winner and the winner will receive a $10 certificate to be used at the book fair. Students will also get to see a preview video of the book fair and summer reading certificates will be handed out to those students who qualified. This is the last week students can check in/check out books at the library until after Thanksgiving break.  

The books they bring home this week will be due the week of November 26th.

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.

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.
