Summer Reading Kickoff Party 2018

 

Celebrate the Summer Reading Program with us! Join us Saturday, June 2 from 5 pm – 7 pm at the Switzer Library in downtown Marietta for our Summer Reading Program Kickoff Party! This year #LibrariesROCK!

Come dressed in your favorite dancing outfit from your favorite decade for our Decades Dance Party! Come ready to dance and show off your moves! Our family-friendly DJ will be playing all the best hits from the 50s to today!

Cobb County Police will be bringing official police vehicles to explore. The Atlanta Dream will lead us in basketball drills and their mascot, Star, will be on-hand for high fives. Enjoy kid yoga, balloon volleyball, arts, crafts, music-centered storytime, and more!

Be sure to stop by our community partner tables and say hi to our friends from Communities in Schools, Cobb County School District, Marietta City Schools, P.A.R.K.S., Barnes & Noble, and the National Park Service.

Holiday Story Time

Holiday Story Time has started in the media center.  We’re reading around a campfire.

K-2 will hear Bear Waits up for Christmas By Karma Wilson. 

 

 

3-5 will hear After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat.

Welcome to the Russell Learning Commons

We had a wonderful first week back to school. Ms. Donina and I worked hard to prepare the media center for students and teachers.  Classes will begin attending orientation sessions the week of Aug. 14th. Please help us by reminding your children to take care of their books and not to misplace them. I review book care with the students and show them lots of examples of sadly damaged books, but please check with your students throughout the year to ensure they are taking care of all school materials.

My most important message to parents is to remind YOU to read to your child, every night! Even students who are strong readers in second grade or higher, should still be read to. And keep in mind that children comprehend material two grade levels above their own reading level when it is read to them. So pull out some good fiction novels and read a few chapters each night!  Visit the public library (it’s free!).  And let’s remember what Einstein said, “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want your children to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

Happy Reading,
Miss Lange
