We have exciting things in store for the kids this year. We are offering the MCBA (Massachusetts Children's Book Award) Challenge. Students in 5th and 6th Grade are being introduced to the selection of books that have been nominated and have until March to read a minimum of 5 of them and cast a vote for their favorite! We have a visiting author scheduled to visit in October. Jack Gantos, an award winning, wonderful author of children's fiction will be here. We have a large selection of his books in our library! Check them out! Please remember that our Author Visits are supported by the proceeds of our Book Fairs! Thank you for supporting our Spring & Fall Book Fairs!
The world of books is a wonderful thing! We look forward to another exciting year of sharing literature and fun stuff with your children. Please help your kids return books on time... this helps them be able to enjoy more books through the year and helps to avoid frustration, please support them with this. You can reach us anytime in the library if you have questions about your child's account.
Your child can always log onto their library account from any computer at home. Log onto the Oak Bluffs School Website, then in the drop down list under STUDENTS you can choose LIBRARY. There you can see updates and can click on the OBS CATALOG... from there, there is a LOG-IN in the top right-hand corner. Click 'Log-in' and use your child's FIRST NAME and FIRST 2 LETTERS OF LAST NAME for the username and then the password is 'abc'. They can do different functions by logging into their account, but best of all they can check the MY INFO and see what they have out for books and if they are OVERDUE.
We look forward to a wonderful year in the library! Please read to your children (no matter how old they are!) Happy reading!!
