Summer Reading Challenge
library-smIt took some time to collect all the TIS Summer Reading Challenge forms, but the results are finally in! Fifty students completed the challenge and most read more than the suggested 10 books. Yay! All 50 students received a certificate, a treat and a prize for their efforts. Four students deserve special recognition for exceptional reading achievement:

Aili H.
Brian G.
Alexander M.
Zane S.

Aili read 148 books and received gifts cards to Borders and Jamba Juice! Brian, Alexander and Zane each selected a non-fiction book to keep.

Great fun everyone!

Book Drive
The TIS Library can earn store credit from Powell's Books for wanted children's books by selling them your used and unwanted adult fiction and non-fiction. Drop off unwanted titles in good to new condition at any reception desk or in the library.
Please save any children's books you find for the Emanuel Children’s Book Drive in the spring! Check In the Know for more information in early spring.

Thank you!

New Library Resource
TrackPacks are designed for families of Pre K-Grade 1 students to discover together while promoting fun and literacy in English, one of the school's target languages, or both. While each TrackPack is unique, borrowers can expect to find a selection of the following inside a clear, child-sized backpack: 1 or more books, a read-along cd, a manipulative, a stuffed animal or character, reusable stickers, games, flashcards, puzzles, and more. Currently, the library is offering just a few for checkout (see below) but many more will be added in all languages throughout the year. Stop by the library to borrow one!

  • TrackPack: Our cat cuddles

  • TrackPack: Disney's the little mermaid

  • TrackPack: La oruga muy hambrienta

  • TrackPack: Nutrition / Nutricion

  • TrackPack: Tales from the Serengeti Elija's mistake/ Missah's mane
