"Reading is to the mind as exercise is to the body." -Joseph Addison

 
The Brackman Library is open during school hours, but students must have a pass from their teacher to come to the library.  If a student needs to stay after to use the computers, I am always willing to stay with them as long as they have parental permission and a ride home.  The library has over 19,000 books, videos and magazines available to the students and staff.   Students can check out books for 2 weeks at a time and can be renewed for an additional 2 weeks if necessary. 
 

News and upcoming events:    

"RIFE" - Reading Is For Everyone - June 3,4,5, 2019 RIFE is our free book give away once a year.  Students come to the library with their ELA teacher and select a free book of their choice to keep and enjoy.    Thank you to the ROBMS PTA for donating $500 towards the purchase of books for the 2017-2018 school year RIFE program.   We thank the PTA for their continued support of the library AND the RIFE program.

Book Fair Update -

The Scholastic Book Fair ran during Parent/Teacher Conference week, November 26-30 and February 21-28.  Students viewed book trailers in ELA class for the most popular books at the book fair.  Students came to the book fair with their ELA teacher. We ran a “lucky locker lottery” where 23 students received a “lucky locker lottery” ticket in their locker giving them the opportunity to select one free book from the book fair.  Parents who stopped by the book fair during Parent/Teacher Conference week, we had a free basket of books raffle. Parents received an entry form when they browsed the book fair. No purchase necessary. For the 2019-20 school year, the book fairs will be held December 2-6, and February 20-28.
