Welcome to the Library
Forcey students and parents are welcome in the library! PreK – 5th Grade classes have a designated time to visit the library weekly. Students may listen to a story, browse for books, and learn how to use the library and its resources. Middle school students may visit the library with a class or on their own. Parents may also get a library card and check out books!
The library subscribes to databases to help students with homework and research assignments. The databases are available to students both at school and at home.
The library celebrates the rich cultural diversity of FCS students throughout the school year. Parents are welcomed into the library to read to students during Hispanic Heritage month, Black History month, European Heritage month, and Asian Pacific American Heritage month. A few years ago, the library was honored to have guest author, Al-Ling Louie, visit to read her first published book, Yeh-Shen: a Cinderella Story From China, and talk about her other books.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
And the class winner is — Mrs. Brigner’s 4th-grade class with the purchase of 50 books! We hope your class is enjoying some exciting new reading material!
The Scholastic book fair is an annual fundraiser for the library. There are books for sale for all ages, with 25% of the proceeds benefiting the library. The book fair is a great place to shop and to stock up your home library! Books also make great gifts! So, be sure to check back at the beginning of next school year for Save the Date.
A big thank you to all those who shopped the Book Fair! And, a special thank you to all those who volunteered to make the Book Fair possible.
USED BOOK SALE
FCS students look forward to this sale all year! Children’s books are sold very inexpensively, with most selling for nickels, dimes and quarters. Students love to browse the June sale for summer reading and count their change for purchases. This sale depends on parent donations, so please bring your used children’s books to the school library, room 162, anytime.
Be on the lookout for Save the Date information!
