Spend 45 minutes each week doing any of the activities below:

  • Read a book of your choice
  • Have someone read to you, either in person or through FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.
  • Listen to an audiobook or kid-safe, book-related podcast
  • Do some of the activities on Kidlit TV, https://kidlit.tv/
  • Watch kid-safe read-aloud videos
  • Learn about an author whose work you admire
  • Write a book review and post it online
  • Write/illustrate a book of your own (this may take more than one week to complete)

 

After you do your library work each week, please email us to let us know what you did and how it went. We can’t wait to hear from you!

The HMK Library is looking for volunteers to help with the Take-Home Library (Blue Book Baggies ) Program. Volunteers come into the library from 8:30-10:30 a.m. 1-2 mornings each week to switch out books for students. It’s a fun, laid-back time that also has positive results because it gives all K-2 students access to new books. If you are interested, please contact Brittany Redd at reddb@grandschools.org or 435-719-4826 and let her know what day(s) you’d like to do. We can only do the Take-Home Library program if we have enough volunteers, so your help would be much appreciated! Thank you!
