To Our Students:
We want you to know that we are excited to kick off the 2023 - 2024 school year by welcoming you to our Oradell Public School (OPS) Library. We can't wait to see you enjoying all of the great library books we have to share with you.
New School Year, New Books:
Speaking of books, we're thrilled to announce that we have over one hundred new books to share with our students beginning Thursday, September 14th when we kick off our library borrowing for the year. The new books include a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction titles ranging from realistic fiction, fantasy, and graphic novels to biographies, natural sciences and history. We can't wait to share all of these new books with our entire OPS community.
On Tuesday, September 26th we'll be kicking off another year of our OPS Library Reading Clubs. These voluntary clubs are open to 1st - 6th grade students, and provide students with an opportunity to earn prizes for reading a wide variety of age-appropriate and award winning fiction and nonfiction literature. Details for each club will be sent home with students the week of September 18th. We will also be sharing information about the clubs with our students during their library class over the next week or so. If you have any questions regarding the clubs please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Lisa Santangelo.
Lunchtime Library Club:
Beginning on September 14th, we will once again be holding our 2nd - 3rd grade and 4th - 6th grade lunchtime library clubs. The monthly clubs are voluntary and will run on an alternating day schedule during each grade's recess period. 2nd - 3rd grade students who sign up for the club will attend on A, C, and E days, and 4th - 6th graders will attend on B, D, and F days. Sign ups will take place in the library, and students who are interested should express their interest in joining the club to Mr. Mangol. Please note that sign ups are monthly on a first come, first serve basis, and each club can only accommodate 15 - 16 students. All of this information will be discussed with students during library class over the next few weeks, but feel free to reach out to Mr. Mangol if you have any questions.
