What's Happening

  • Our Book Vending Machine has been AMAZING!  EVERY student in the school earned a book in our first year, along with many teachers and parents; even a few former OWLS who came back for their senior walk.
  • Our theme this year is all about the South Carolina Book Award Nominees for Picture Book and Children's books.  We are working on getting some guest authors from this list.
  • Our Fall Book Fair will be poppin' at the Carnival, August 28-Sept 12. 
  • Our Spring Book Fair will be PAWsatively Pawsome and will be leading right up to Spring Break.

Library Challenges

Each week students will be able to take the weekly read aloud trivia challenge for a chance to win a corresponding book dog tag key chain.

International Dot Day is Friday, September 15.  Students will be able to design their own shirt to wear.

October will be a chance for students, parents, teachers, and families to disguise a pumpkin as a book character. 

When we get back from winter break the library challenge will be for 3rd, 4th, 5th graders.  Students will be invited to design a bookmark for one of the Children's Book Nominees (listed below).   Parents will need to sign off on the challenge.

In class students will be working on the state challenge for the picture bookmark (grade K-2) and the picture book/children's book trailer videos (grades 3-5). Some students/groups might continue their work at home.  This will be our third year competing.  

Coding with stickers!  The library has a mystery poster in the room.  Patrons have to use the legend to help color/ABC code the stickers to help make the mystery image appear.

Interactive boards.  Throughout the year there are interactive bulletin boards outside the library.  Students, staff and parents are invited to participate.  Sometimes they are a game, sometimes they are filling out a paper to point.
