End of the Year Wrap-Up

I can hardly believe it is May, this school year has gone by quickly!

Please be aware of these important upcoming dates for the Library: 

May 27: Last day to turn in books
June 3 - Last day to pay fines
May 31-June 8 - Library closed for inventory and cleaning

Fines are payable in cash only at the school’s office. Please put the money in an envelope addressed to the and put your child’s name and turn it into the school’s office. If you have any questions please email me at library@tvja.org.

I will be sending home information regarding overdue books and fines in the next few weeks. Notices to families of junior high students will be sent home via USPS.

OK - now for the fun stuff!

Has your student been cooking at home? If they have, don't forget to remind them to fill out their entry for the Library Cooking Challenge. This challenge will end on May 20th, all entries must be turned in by the end of the school day. I've enjoyed reading the forms that have been returned! We will wind down the school year reading and talking about food in literature. This tasty topic should be a fun way to end the year.

Have you had a chance to experience live children's theater with your student this year? If not, there's still time! Both NW Children's Theater and Oregon Children's Theatre are showing their last productions of the season.

Snow White is playing at NWCT and it is noted that this play is best viewed by children 5 and up.

OCT is showing James and the Giant Peach. The stage photos on their website look amazing and I'm hoping I can get to this show before it closes. James and the Giant Peach is one of my favorite books and I'm eager to see how it is played out in a live production. Note this production is recommended for children 4 and up.

I checked in at the Hillsboro Library for summer reading information, but it is not ready yet. There are several summer reading programs in the area and I encourage all students to participate.

Have a fantastic day!
