I am finally making the switch to using my Schoology blog instead of the existing RES Library Learners WordPress blog.  Updates can be found here:

This is a sample selection of the materials in the RES Library collection that focus on the Constitution.

If your child participated in the “Go Nutz for Reading” program this Spring, please send in the bookmarks ASAP.  I need to send a list of participants to the Richmond Flying Squirrels.  Once I receive the FREE tickets, I will pass them out to the participants.

*Please mark your calendar:  THURSDAY, MAY 8th IS RES READING NIGHT @ THE DIAMOND!   Students who participated in the “Go Nutz for Reading” program will get to join the on-field parade before the game and then stay for fireworks afterward.  The game begins at 6:30 PM, so those who wish to join the parade should be there about an hour before game time.  Hope to see you there!

If you’re looking for something fun and exciting to do on this 17th snow day of the school year, I have a wonderful idea for you!  Take a look under beds, in closets, in book bags, and on desks for your lost Library books!  Be sure to bring them back to school with you once we return!

For the past week or so, I have been working on reconstructing the entire library collection database due to a malfunction I recently discovered.  The system had been showing items that are supposedly checked out to students, but are actually sitting on the library shelves or had been checked out to other students.  It’s been a long process, but there seems to be an end in sight.

Students who visited the library this week have been borrowing books from sections of the library that have already been inventoried and re-scanned.  Other sections are marked off and unavailable until I can complete the scanning process.
Thanks for your understanding.  I will keep everyone updated with the latest news on this blog.

The 2014 ALA Youth Media Awards will be presented tomorrow! I’m anxious to learn which books will be chosen to win the Caldecott, Newbery, Coretta Scott King, Pura Belpre, Geisel & other major awards!  There are quite a few books for children that deserve to be recognized.  Time shall tell!

September 13th is an important date for the Library.  TWO forms are due:  Reading Olympics parent permission slips (for students in grades 4 & 5) and the Field Day of the Past Summer Reading forms.

This summer I had the privilege of spending an entire week at the University of Richmond with Randolph’s amazing art teacher, Cindy Edmonds…and some of the most inspiring local talent you can imagine!  We were participating in the 2013 Partners in the Arts Institute – learning about the importance of incorporating the arts into every aspect of our school curriculum.

Once again, it’s that time of year…the time to return all borrowed materials to the Library-Media Center!

The last day of school is quickly approaching, so please take a moment to locate your overdue books, videos, Playaways, iPads, and everything else you may have borrowed this year.  We’d love to be able to let someone else use these things when school starts again in August!

Overdue notices will be sent home to all families by the end of the week.

Thanks so much!
