SUMMER EDITION LUNCH BUNCH by Erin Baker
Our Virtual Lunch Bunch has been so much fun, we are taking it into summer! Virtual Lunch Bunch will continue to meet throughout the summer on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. This is a fun way to connect with people who love to read in a relaxed and inclusive setting. On Thursday, May 28th we will make our next selection from Sora’s Sweet Reads where we have access to unlimited copies of the book we choose. If you are interested in receiving an invitation to our Zoom meeting, share your email address via the Microsoft Form. There’s no pressure to commit.
*The invitation is open for CCSD students, parents, faculty and staff only.
In partnership with the Cobb County Public Library System, CCSD Library Media will be sunsetting Biblionasium this summer and moving to Beanstack as our Reading Challenge Platform. Students will have access to their Biblionasium accounts through June 26th. Those who participated in the Durham Library’s March Madness and Beyond Reading Challenge will be recognized, so students are encouraged to enter their reading minutes if they have been waiting to do so. The Cobb Public Library System will be taking the lead with Beanstack during the summer break, and then CCSD Library Media will continue that momentum in the fall. Summer Reading details are now posted on the Library Learning Commons blog.
The 2020 Summer Reading Adventure begins June 1st! We encourage all students and families to read 20 minutes each day for a total of 20 hours this summer.
This year students and families will sign up for the Summer Reading Adventure through the Cobb County Public Library at http://www.cobbcat.org/summer/.
