Dear Parents of Grades PK-Grade 3,
Your child is not old enough to take books out for the summer, so we wanted to let you know your options for summer reading. As a patron of the AAS Library, you and your spouse can take out 20 books each for the summer. Summer checkout will begin on Saturday, June 8 for patrons and families who have no overdue books. We will checkout summer books until Thursday, June 20 when campus closes for the summer.
If you prefer digital resources, here are some resources that can keep you connected to our library throughout the summer.
The AAS Library has access to:
Tumblebooks, where books are read aloud, and where you can find games and all sorts of fun activities.
Storyline Online, where famous actors read aloud their favorite stories. The animation that accompanies it is wonderful.
PebbleGo, where students can practice their reading and find informational texts at their levels.
The username for these three sites is aasmoscow, the password is penguins.
Some parents have also enjoyed audiobooks with their children. See our Overdrive if you want to enjoy some favorites with your child. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or come and see us if you would like to set up a personal Overdrive account with us.
Students grades 3 and above have Overdrive accounts already, with the username their ST-012345 number and the password penguins.
We hope you have a beautiful, sunny summer with your child, and enjoy any reading you can do! Please see our State of the Library annual report to see the most popular books for both you and your children, and get some recommendations on what they might choose to read this summer.
All the best,
The AAS Library
