• (Virtual) Author Visit

    Local author Penny Warner will be visiting with the 3rd and 4th grade classes in early November.

    She has been to Joe Michell before and students always get excited about her presentation, and her books are constantly checked out from the Library.
    She writes the “Code-Busters” books and talks about different codes
    and deciphering them.
    She will bring a “code packet” for each student!
    She also gives students pointers on being a better writer.

    Since she doesn’t charge for her presentation,
    we can thank her by purchasing a book!

    She will be signing books and you can order with the attached form.
    (Anyone can order, not just 3rd and 4th grade)

    The visit will take place on November 4, and your teacher will provide your student with the information needed to join the presentation.

    Here is the link to the order form.


    I am also placing Scholastic Book Club orders.

    Every time you order, you are also helping the Joe Michell Library earn books. Now, Scholastic will ship directly to your home!

    If you would like to order, here is the information.

    Ordering is easy. You can:

    • Order on-line. Go to scholastic.com/readingclub. Our class code is LPTTY. You will need to set up an account and pay directly to Scholastic.
    • I will be notified and your order will be shipped directly to Joe Michell. We will arrange delivery/pick-up.

  • Please help your child remember the following rules:

    Books should be returned every week, so your child may check out another. 

     If the book is not returned, they will not be allowed to take another book home.

    Books should be kept away from younger children, pets, food and water.

    A book should be stored in your child's backpack when they are not reading it.  That way, it will be sure to be returned to school.

    Books must be treated with special care.  Please send a book back to the Library if it is accidentally damaged while it is checked out.
