"Wild about Books" with Mrs. Drews

We are off to a great start in the library this year! Students are excited to be checking out books and participating in library activities. During library class, students are reviewing how to use Follett Destiny Quest, which is the website we use for all things library – checking out books, searching for materials, etc. Students also have a username and password to log into Destiny Quest. Once logged in, they can check to see what books they have checked out and when they are due, they can put books on hold, create virtual bookshelves, and recommend books to their friends. They can also write reviews on the books in our library, something they will be doing during a library class in the near future. Their login information is:

 Username: 122firstlast (ex.122jamesshoe)

Password: nlsd##### (ID number – ex. nlsd12345)

I have also promoted our Fall Reading Program, which involves two of the Illinois Children’s Choice Award programs. The Illinois Bluestem Award is for grades 3-5, and the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers’ Book Award is for grades 4-8. Students who choose to participate read 3 or more books from either or both programs before the end of February and will be able to vote on their favorites. These votes are tallied with other students in Illinois and the one with the most votes wins the award. Students also get the chance to earn prizes for every three books they read. Links to the book lists are located at the bottom of this page under Illinois Children’s Choice Programs. If you would like a copy of the procedures, click on the link below.

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 first 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 27th.  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.
