Nelson Prairie Library

October News

            Many thanks to parents for helping your children organize themselves to return their books on time for their library day each week. All grade levels will now begin checking out two books.  I ask that students choose one book at their reading level, to practice reading at home.  The second book can be anything they want. 

            The students have been learning about fiction and nonfiction.  They were taught a cute “cheer” to help them remember the difference between the two types of books in the library.  I am sure they would love to show it to you.  



September News

      Welcome back to another exciting year in the L.R.C.  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 on Thursday, September 7th and Friday September 8th.  During the first library check-out the students will be given a bookmark indicating their library day.   All books are due one week 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.  Second and third grade students will be allowed to check out two books.  First grade students will check out one book and as they get into the routine of school, two books will be allowed at a later date.  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: jhollingsworth@nlsd122.org

 Please encourage your child to read each day.

 September News  

Students visits 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 on Thursday, September7th  and Friday September 8th, for students at Haines School.  They will be given a bookmark indicating their library day.  All books are due one week 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. Third grade and second grade students will be allowed to check out two books. First grade students will check out one book and as they get into the routine of school, two books will be allowed at a later date.  If a student is absent on their library day, they can return their books when they return to school. If a book or other item is lost, students are charged the cost of replacing the item.  If the item is then found, the money is returned to the student.

     Please remember to keep library books away from water.  Water always wins and will ruin the book.  It is nearly impossible to repair a book after it was wet and the library will need to charge a replacement fine.

  • Students in 3rd grade may check out two books.
  • Students in 2nd grade may check out two books.

It was an amazing day for the children!

Reading Tips:
1)  Read together every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close.
2) Give everything a name.  This will help build your child's vocabulary by talking about interesting words and objects.
3) Say how much you enjoy reading.
4) Read with fun in your voice.
5) Point out print everywhere. Talk about written words around you.  Ask your child to show you new words as you are on outings.
