Welcome to the Primary Library Website for
Nelson Prairie, Spencer Pointe, Haines and Tyler! 

Nelson Prairie 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 on Thursday, September 6th and Friday September 7th.  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: clasak@nlsd122.org

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.
