Intermediate Battle List
The Northside Elementary Library is an
active spot in our school. Because reading is such an integral part of
learning, our focus is always to provide children with materials they will
enjoy. Students are scheduled to come to library once a week with their
class. Much of this time is spent sharing literature with the students to
encourage them along the path to become life long readers. Students are
encouraged to come back to the library frequently during the week to select new
literature as they complete books.
We sponsor two book fairs in the library
each year. One is held during the fall semester and one during the spring
semester. Money that is earned during these fairs is used to buy library
materials for our students and to assist in sponsoring an author visit to our
school each year.
Author visits are traditionally held
during the spring semester if the visiting author's schedule will permit.
We have been very fortunate in sponsoring authors of the highest caliber.
This serves as a catalyst to encourage our students to establish high goals for
themselves as continue to reach higher and higher.
Our visiting authors have included,
Eileen Christelow, Paul Brett Johnson, Cheryl Harness, Tres Seymour, Patricia
Polacco, Peter Catalanotto, Marie Bradby, Jacqueline Woodson and Natalie
The Battle of the Books program
is a major part of our elementary school programs in Harrison County. Our
students in grades 2-5 read from a select list of age appropriate literature
during the school year. A quick recall competition will be held
at the Harrison County High School to determine a county winner in the Battle of
the Books program.
Our library is indeed an active
place. Our hours are 7:50 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. each school day.
