Summer Reading 2013!

As a little friend reminded me this morning…”it’s almost here…summer reading summer-reading(although I think she meant ‘summer break’)!”¬† ūüôā¬† There are multiple options this summer for our friends to continue making lots of progress in individual reading.¬† One of the best options is the Meadows Library 2013 Summer Reading Program from June 11 – August 6…no reservations needed.¬† Story time takes place each Tuesday and Friday @ 11:00 a.m.¬† Teen Book Club meets each Thursday @ 2:00 p.m.¬† Family-friendly events and book-related movies take place each Wednesday @ 2:00 p.m.¬† Check out or for more information today.

Another outstanding offering this summer is the Virtually Blooming Bluebonnet Camp.¬† It’s open to any MISD student currently in grades 3/4 who attends one of the six elementary campuses.¬† There is a two-hour introduction session on June 11 from 9:00-11:00, 12:00-2:00, or 2:00-4:00 where learners will log-in, discuss digital citizenship, and learn how to use the program to jump start their summer reading.¬† Readers will communicate throughout the summer with the virtual camp directors (MISD Library Media Specialists) to discuss books by participating in online discussions, posting questions and comments, and so forth.¬† Through this type of camp experience, readers are introduced to a safe virtual learning community with professional educators who support and LOVE reading.¬† Notices and permission forms went home last week.¬† Please contact our school librarian, Melissa Bolgiano, or the front office at 972-775-4497 for more information.

These are just two options to encourage your child to participate with others throughout the summer and read.¬† Here’s hoping you check these and others out as you make your summer plans…Happy Summer Reading 2013!
