FACE-THE-LIBRARY BOOKS AND TAKE UP THE SUMMER READING CHALLENGE


Hey Students!

Chilling on the couch, long car trips, visiting new places, lounging by the pool, sitting around Grandma's house...summertime offers ample opportunity for you to read for pleasure. To wield against the inevitable summer backslide, you need to read over the summer. It's our job as the librarians to make that as feasible as possible.  We offer you UNLIMITED SUMMER CHECKOUT @ Your School Library.  Take up the Summer Reading Challenge and start issuing books from your library- the treasure trove of resources. List the titles that you read with very short reviews and post it in the COMMENT box of this Post. You can mention the books from your personal collection also. You can send the list by June 27, 2016. We will publish your Reading Lists in the Blog. The one who reads the most and sends us the most extensive list will be declared as SUMMER SCHOLAR and awarded in the School Assembly.

So, Get...SET.....GO....take up the challenge and start reading for pleasure. It's much more exciting than to spend the vacation parked in front of the television, playing with gadgets, getting addicted to mobiles or surfing the Internet.
