Library

Welcome to Spark! Discovery Pre-school’s Library website!  This website will allow you to find out more about our library and will provide your family with helpful links and current information! Our Media Clerk is Laura Fuss.

 

BOOK CHECK OUT

Checking out Library books is optional. If you don’t wish to checkout books please indicate “No” on the library form you received during the registration process.

Your student will be able to checkout one library book when they visit the library (please see your child’s teacher for their specific library days, as each class has their own schedule). Each class visits the library for 20 minutes. During that time, where they are read a story aloud and then they will be able to choose their own book to take home. Please return books one week from the date they are checked out. If a books becomes damaged while at home, please let me know and we will do my best to mead the book. In the event that a book can’t be fixed, or becomes lost, we ask that you pay to replace the materials. This will allow us to keep our library fully stocked for our students use. If you need the title of your child’s book please don’t hesitate to call and ask.

 

HANDLING BOOKS -- HELPFUL HINTS FOR PARENTS AT HOME

-Please handle the book with clean hands and be careful when turning the pages so they don’t wrinkle or tear

-Find a safe place at home to keep the book when it isn’t being read

-Please keep books away from food, drinks, and pets

-Use your Book Buddy Bags, or a backpack, to carry your book to and from school

Fun Fact: Reading aloud builds our students vocabulary and sentence structure. By reading aloud during story time, our students will increase their reading levels. Furthermore, it creates a model for children of what readers look like and how to make sense of text and illustrations.

 

Book Fairs

Our school holds a Book Fair once a year in our Makerspace/Library room. Our Book Fair usually takes place during parent teacher conferences in November.

This is a great opportunity to buy new books to add to your students library! Funds from book fairs benefit the library directly -- to increase the size of our book collection in the library.

One Book 4 Colorado

This program provides a copy of the same book to 4-year-olds across the state each spring through public libraries, Reach Out and Read Colorado clinics, and Denver Preschool Program classrooms. Funded through private donations, the program annually gives away over 75,000 copies of the same new book in English and Spanish for a 2-week period in April. Participating agencies offer hundreds of fun, free events to give away the books and celebrate reading in their communities.The program encourages families to read together every day, adds new books to home libraries, helps 4-year-olds develop the pre-reading skills they’ll need when they’re learning to read in kindergarten, and makes reading fun for young children. Giving all the children the same book encourages young children to talk with each other about the book and share it with their friends and families.
