As the school year comes to an end, it is important to remind students to partake in summer reading. The BCLS summer reading program is a fun way to keep students engaged and reading throughout the summer. This year’s theme is Dig into Reading! The program runs from June 24th through August 16th and is for all ages.
As June rapidly approaches, students are looking forward to the end of the school year. With summer vacation in mind, it may be difficult to keep students engaged and learning. BCLS has compiled a list of online sources that will inspire you to create interesting end of the year lessons!
May is National Inventors Month. During this time the innovative individuals that improved our lives with their creative inventions are celebrated! Teachers, this would be a fun, interesting topic to conclude the school year.
Many high school and college students across the county are in the midst of final exams and projects. During this stressful time, students may be looking for a quiet place to work. Several of the BCLS locations contain quiet study rooms; which are great for studying, working on projects and group discussions. Encourage students to contact their local BCLS branch to gain access to this amenity.
