Do you ever feel stuck when you're looking for a good book? You should check out the NYC READS 365 program! School librarians from all across New York City have worked together to develop a reading list of fantastic books for every grade from Pre-K to 12. We're working on stocking every book for grades Pre-K to 8 here at the PS 149 library, but in the meantime I've put together a guide to what we have right now! View the guide below, or download it by clicking on the link on the sidebar.
Don't forget to write down the ones you want to check out and read from the library! Bring your list to the library and we'll help you find them to check out and read at home.
Changes are everywhere at the PS 149 Library, starting with our first shipment of new books! Se now have every book by Rick Riordan, lots of great new YA books for our middle schoolers, and SO MUCH MORE! Stop by to be the first one to check something out!
Author and illustrator Dave Roman visited PS 149 in December! He talked to our students about his career, art and writing, shared pictures of his comic book work in progress, and inspired our students to create their own original comic works. Thanks to Mr. Roman from all of the students and teachers you inspired with your visit!
Our Girls and Boys Book clubs (Coraline by Neil Gaiman and The Crossover by Kwame Alexander) are starting this week. Due to popular demand, we are running two rounds of the club. Round One will be for 8th graders and will take place during December. Round Two will be for 6th and 7th graders and will take place in January.
Meetings will be Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting on 12/9 for the boys and 12/10 for the girls. See you then!
Thanks to everyone who bought books and school supplies - we raised over $1,200 in funds for our school library! See you at the next Parent Teacher Conferences!
