September is Library Card Month
There's still time!
There are 4 more days left of
If you're like me, sometimes the last minute motivates you!
DID YOU KNOW?
~ Libraries lend out magazines!
~ Long drives are the best time to introduce kids to audio books!
~As long as kids can write their name, they can obtain their own card!
PER the American Association of School Liberians article: Independent Reading and School Achievement, "Students who read independently become better readers, score higher on achievement tests in all subject areas, and have greater content knowledge than those who do not (Krashen 1993; Cunningham and Stanovich 1991; Stanovich and Cunningham 1993)...
and...The common sense notion that students who do a substantial amount of voluntary reading demonstrate a positive attitude toward reading is upheld in both qualitative and quantitative research (Long and Henderson 1973; Greaney 1980; Hepler and Hickman 1982; Greaney and Hegarty 1987; Reutzel and Hollingsworth 1991; Shapiro and White 1991; Mathewson 1994; Barbieri 1995; Short 1995). Students’ reading achievement has been shown to correlate with success in school and the amount of independent reading they do (Greaney 1980; Anderson, Fielding and Wilson 1988). This affirms the predictability of a success cycle: we become more proficient at what we practice (Cullinan 1992)......
THE LIBRARY PROMOTES ALL OF THE ABOVE.
GREAT REASONS TO RUSH TO THE LIBRARY
TODAY AND GET YOUR CHILD HIS/HER OWN CARD!
Instill a love for reading early.
Take them too! It's never too late!
And, don't wait for a rainy day to go...
Get the books now and be ready for the rain!
I ALMOST FORGOT!!!
You'll never have to stress about forgetting your library card at home!
Because, now a days you can get a bar code tag for each of your library cards!
(It's a bar code keychain just like store or club membership cards!)
LIBRARIES and TECHNOLOGY
AND DON'T FORGET...
