Library News from Mrs. Drews

“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book”.

Welcome back to a new school year! I am Mrs. Kathleen Drews and I will be your child’s Librarian this year. This will be my fourth year as Librarian at Nelson Ridge School. As I did last school year, I will be splitting my time between Nelson Ridge and Bentley, as well as teaching Library skills to the sixth graders at Oster-Oakview. Your child will have regular library time every week, however I will only be with them every other week. Your child’s Language Arts teacher will bring their class on the alternate weeks. I am planning on running some exciting reading programs throughout the year to motivate our students to read a variety of books! I will be posting information about these programs very soon so stay tuned!

The students were introduced to the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award, the Illinois Bluestem Award, and the Illinois Monarch Award. These are sponsored by Illinois organizations including The Association of School Library Educators (AISLE), and The Illinois Reading Council (IRC). Attached below is more information about the program, lists of the books, and a link to to where you can write a review of the book you read. (These reviews will count toward book totals for the program.

I do not have an assistant so volunteers will be very much needed to help keep the library running smoothly. If you have any questions about this, or if you are interested in volunteering, please fill out a Volunteer form, call the main office, or email me at the address below. I’m looking forward to another exciting year!

Oakview Library

Welcome back to another exciting year in the L.R.C.   My name is Claire Lasak, and I am very excited to be your child’s new librarian. This will be my ninth year working in the New Lenox School District and my second year as a librarian.  Students will be visiting the library for a thirty-minute session per week. During that time they will be taught library skills, read literature, and borrow books. The children will begin borrowing books the week of August 26th.  All books are due two weeks from the day they are checked out. Books may be renewed, but the student must bring the book to the library in order to do so. Students will be able to check out up to three books at a time. If new books are needed before the next check out date, they are more than welcome to visit the library and select new books.  If a student is absent on their library day, they can return their books when they return to school. If you have any questions, please email me at: clasak@nlsd122.org

Procedures and Policies

*Students may check out 2 books at one time- one pleasure reading book, and one of their choice.

*Books are loaned out for 10 school days.

*Please check the due date card that is located in the front pocket of the book to see the date it is due.

*If the book is lost or stolen, THE STUDENT WHO HAS CHECKED OUT THE BOOK will be charged the CURRENT price of the book.
