Build a Better World - November 13-17, 2017
Chilton Elementary and Middle School Library will celebrate with a library fine amnesty week, bookmark contest, and paperback book exchange.
AMNESTY: Ask for amnesty for library fines and it will be provided this week.
BOOKMARK CONTEST: The bookmarks must be about books, reading, or libraries. Bookmarks will be handed out to students on card stock, 8 1/2 x 2 3/4 in. Judging criteria will include: uniqueness, creativity, how well the bookmark communicates its message, and artistic merit. It is suggested to use scrap paper to design the bookmark, and then transfer it to the card stock with black ink. Name, Grade & Teacher should be written on the back of the bookmark. One winner per classroom in the elementary school and one winner in each grade in middle school will receive books for their efforts. The bookmarks of the winners will be reproduced for April’s School Library Media Month and/or next year’s Read Aloud Month. Bookmarks are due the last day of school in November.
PAPERBACK BOOK EXCHANGE:
Bring good conditioned/slightly used paperback books to the library any time before November 10.
Receive a coupon, good for as many books as you brought in, to be used during lunch/recess on November 13.
Older students may choose to exchange two picture books for one chapter book.
