Pennsylvania Librarians State Association (PLSA) Reader's Choice Program
Each year the Pennsylvania Librarians State Association sponsors a reading program from October to March. The students are given a list of books that are part of this program. There are three different categories: Grades K-3, Grades 3-6, and Grades 6-8. The students are to read at least three from the list by the end of February. In March, those students vote on the book from the list that they liked the best. The books are separated and labeled in the library to help the students to read the correct titles. Miss Snyder helps all the students by reading at least three of the books from the Grades 3-6 category so that all of the students will be able to vote each year. All of the students across Pennsylvania are completing the program. The results of all the students voting are announced in April. The students find it interesting to see if the GMIS results are the same as the whole state.
Read Across America Program
March 2 is Dr. Seuss's birthday. That day has now become Read Across America day when all students are supposed to take time to read. This year we had a Dr. Seuss birthday party in the library. Two students from each homebase were invited to the library during their lunch period. The students were invited based on the number of books that they read from the library this year. The invited students ate their lunch in the library with birthday cake and snacks. After lunch, they were able to sign out new library books. All the students had a good time and were pleased to be the first students to sign out the new books.
