Nelson Ridge Library

Happy New School Year! I'm Mrs. Drews and I'm excited to be the new Librarian at Nelson Ridge! I have spent the last 14 years at Liberty Junior High and am looking forward to the change of grade and scenery. Below I will post basic Library information and current library events. 

Book Check-out Policies

Students at Nelson Ridge School may check out up to 3 items at a time (books and/or magazines). These will be checked out for one week, but may be renewed if there is not a hold on the item.There are no fines charged for overdue items, but lost items must be either paid for or replaced.

Reading Rockets Library Club

Reading Rockets is a club for students who don't just like to read, but who LOVE to read! We will meet two Thursdays each month (except February and March). We will discuss the latest books that interest us, as well as the 2017 Illinois Children's Choice books (aka: Bluestem and Rebecca Caudill Nominees). The Bluestem Award is for grades 3-5 and the Rebecca Caudill is for grades 4-8. For more information on these nominees, click on the following links:

Oakview Library

The Rebecca Caudill votes are in!  The children at Oster-Oakview picked the book Echo by: Pam Munoz Ryan as their favorite book.  However the children across the state of Illinois chose the book The Crossover by: Kwame Alexander.  

Coming in second place was The War that Saved My Life by Kimberly Bradley.  Third place was Masterminds by Gordon Korman.

The book club will begin again in September 2017.
