St. John Catholic School Library
Katharine Kan, Librarian. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any student in gr. 6-8 who doesn't sign up for Library Book Club is still welcome to come in during morning break or right after school to borrow books. Parents are also welcome to come in to borrow books for themselves or their children.
The library will be participating in Trunk or Treat on Oct. 28; Mrs. Kan has purchased Halloween ComicFest comics from The Comic Emporium and will be giving out those comics and other non-food treats to all Trick-or-Treaters. Children (and adults, too) can choose from Archie, Grumpy Cat, Mickey Mouse, Pokemon, a comic book-making kit, and more. Look for Mrs. Kan in her Batgirl shirt. Please stop in at The Comic Emporium and thank Greg Ray for his longtime support of our school by providing the comics at a steep discount to Mrs. Kan.
Students who miss Trunk or Treat can still get a comic book treat on Monday, Oct. 31, as Halloween ComicFest will continue in the Library all morning.
Library cards - important research tools. Parents, please take your children to get library cards from the public library. Even if you never check out books, the card gives you access to FREE databases with excellent information for research. Students who have their cards will be able to access those databases from home and from school. Students should have their library card numbers written down so they may access databases from the school's computers. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! EVERY STUDENT SHOULD HAVE A LIBRARY CARD FROM OUR PUBLIC LIBRARY!
Mrs. Kan is looking for parent volunteers to help shelve books and to process newly cataloged books. Please contact her by email or come talk to her in the Library on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Ear more service hours!
