Primary Library: Home

WELCOME BACK!!!!

Time is flying! We are getting ready to wrap the year up. It's been fantastic to see how much reading our Primary students have been doing!!!  We have had a great second semester covering interesting topics such as literary awards and biographies. 

Our dates for returning and closing the PS Library for inventory are posted below.

Please keep in mind that parents are always welcome to come and check books out. You may check out up to twelve books as often as you wish. Please check the hours in which we are open on the Home Page. If by any chance, you want to return books and can't come during those times, we have a Return Box right outside the library. 

We hope to see you soon!

Happy 2017!!

Dear CNG Community,

The end of the school year is approaching very quickly and the Primary Library is getting ready to close due to its annual inventory. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS with the following important dates so you can plan ahead:

May 4-11: Last 6 days for ALL check outs.

May 12-22: Last 7 days to return ALL books and materials. Library classes will take place normally. 

May 17, 18, & 19: FHNG Used Book Fair and Online summer recommendations book sale on campus. Teachers may take students any time during these 3 days. PARENTS ARE WELCOME!!!!

May 24: Last day for library class

 May 25: Inventory begins

May 30: Last day for Reading Logs (Even though Library is closed).

Please keep in mind that the charge for any lost or damaged book is $50,000 pesos.

** We have agreed not to sponsor a CNG - Library book fair at the end of this school year. However, we know how much the community values the used book sale Adair Poole and the volunteers from the Fundacion have put on for the past years. This is why the F H N G will continue having a used book fair before the summer vacation.

In regards to the summer reading recommendation books, the Primary Library will be uploading the lists on the PS Library webpage with the suggested titles. Parents may purchase the books anywhere they wish or online through Children's Books. The lists will be uploaded at the end of April for those families who wish to purchase their summer reading earlier. 

Additionally, Children's Books will be present at the book sale on campus for purchases online.
