NEWS FROM THE LIBRARY
As the school year draws to a close, please be aware that Friday, May 26, will be the last day for checking books out and that all library books need to be returned by Friday, June 2nd. Summer check out will start on Monday, June 5th. Please read below for details.
SUMMER READING FUN!!!
Studies show that children and teens who read during the summer are better prepared for school in the fall. Also, reading for fun results in significant gains in vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
The library is again offering returning AISZ students the opportunity to borrow library books over the summer holiday starting June 5th. Please take care of books and remember to return them on the first day of school.
Elementary students will need parental permission (Summer Reading Form). Middle School and High School students are welcome to check out summer books without parental permission. In addition, go to our library website to view web pages full of ideas for good books as well as book-related activities. With individual logins, student can also read all our ebooks through Destiny Discover via our Destiny Quest/Library catalog. Click here for more details and about the Follett Quest app you can download to read ebooks and search our catalog.
The library is also organizing a summer reading program called Summer Reading Fun. The purpose of this activity is to encourage recreational reading over the summer. Students will keep a reading log ( AISZ Summer Reading Fun Log) in which they will write down the titles of the books they’ve read. Students that read fifteen or more books during summer will be invited to an ice-cream party in September! This is open to all students. Young students can do this activity with their parents. Books do not have to be in English.
POSTCARDS TO LIBRARY
We always want to hear about your reading adventures so we ask you to send postcards to the library all summer long. Send a postcard to the library from where you are, with info about what you have been reading. And when school starts, all the postcards will be displayed in the library with cool summer readings.

Have a safe and relaxing summer, and do encourage your children to read!
