Good book news!

Brooklyn New School/Brooklyn Collaborative School Library was awarded a New Yorkers Read Grant (big thanks to NYC Department of Education Office of Library Services).   The award will provide new non-fiction books and more book sets for book clubs!  The program will be officially rolling out in September.  Keep your eyes peeled.

Speaking of book clubs, a new book club for 4th graders will be starting on Wednesday, April 4th in library @ 11:30  for introducing a favorite book or character,  and choosing our first read!

Library Open Tuesday 3/13 12:45 – 3:30 pm

Brooklyn New School caregivers, feel free to stop by the library before, after or between parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday, March 13th from 12:45 – 3:30. 

And Open House is this Thursday 3/15 for BNS students and caregivers and BCS students!  3:30 – 4:30.

Hooray for caregivers

The library hosted the Brooklyn New School Parents as Learning Partners meeting today with this presentation including: information about the library, research influencing library practices, plans for the future,  making literacy part of family life and supporting their child in selecting a “just right” book (also in handout).

Please also see links with book reviews and other literacy resources on the updated Resources – for Parents page.

Caregivers are invited to join us in fundraising efforts, recommend books that the library should have, offer suggestions/resources for the website, encourage students to write book reviews, and come by and visit during Open Library (3rd Thursday at 3:30) or just after school.

Feel free to leave a comment!

Author visit – Christopher Grant

Christopher Grant read to BCS students from his novel, Teenie during his December visit and spent time discussing the book and his writing process.  Students rushed to sign out the library copies of Teenie and there is a waitlist for the new novel, convincingly written about a teenage girl with talent, ambition, honor and humor.  We are all looking forward to his next book, a science fiction, though his publishers should let him make a sequel to Teenie!
