Library staff members are diligently working to make sure students have Library Cards and are ready for summer! Staff traveled to Robert Lucas and Grant Wood elementary recently to sign students up for Library Cards. Staff will be at Mark Twain Elementary’s Family Night on May 29 to sign students and family members up for Library Cards.
We are also working with Teacher Librarians and Student & Family Advocates to help students at other schools sign-up for Library Cards. In these cases, school staff collect applications and forward them to Library staff. Library staff issue the Library Cards and mail them to the student’s home.
We are also working with Johnson County Extension’s 4-H on Wheels summer program to extend Library services to students who will participate in 4-H on Wheels in Lone Tree this summer. Library staff will travel to Lone Tree once a week to check out Library materials to students based on the weekly 4-H on Wheels theme. The themes are generally STEM based and including information about nutrition, science, and other interesting topics.
Since the beginning of February, Library Staff have issued 144 Library Cards though our outreach efforts with local schools. We appreciate the wonderful staff at our schools and their dedication to help students continue to read over the summer.
Here’s a rundown of the numbers. Three Cheers for Library Cards!
