The Liberty Middle School (LMS) Scholastic Book Fair will take place Tuesday, June 7 through Friday, June 10. Every book will be Buy One, Get One Free.
The school would like to invite parents to our school to share in this celebration of books and reading.
“Not only does the book fair help raise funds to purchase essential classroom and library resources, it also helps fund events like Author Day and encourages reading among our students,” LMS Librarian Jill Parks said.
This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on books for summer reading. As students grow older, it is so important to keep books in their lives, she said. Students who remain readers now are more likely to be lifelong learners. Readers develop larger vocabularies, a greater knowledge of the world, and higher academic achievement. In fact, studies indicate that being a reader is more predictive of success than intelligence, economic background, or gender.
The fair will provide a wide variety of books specifically selected to appeal to middle school interests. Students will discover books that are entertaining, inspirational, and a resource for dealing with emerging emotions. In addition, our fair will have books for elementary aged readers as well as bestsellers that adults will find interesting and useful.
The fair will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Please, stop in the LMS Library to browse and find books that can help your child stay connected with reading. If none of these times work for you, please contact Mrs. Parks at 845-292-5400 ext. 5219 or firstname.lastname@example.org make an appointment. Each student will attend the fair with their English Language Arts classes. We encourage you to discuss the fair with your child to determine what books he or she may want to add to their personal collection.
