AOMS Library

Library Hours for Students:  7:30 a.m. -- 3:00 p.m. (except some Thursdays, minimum day, library may close at 1:00 pm due to meetings). 

Students:  Unless there is a scheduled class in the library, the library is open during all brunches and lunches.  Students sign in to use the library during their lunch break, and need to have a purpose to be here during lunch, e.g., reading, do homework, use computer, printer, checkout materials, etc.  Please watch for closed signs on the door as there may be a class in the library during your break.

California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) Program

AOM Library is offering the California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program or Challenge to all students.  We are promoting the program via the English Language Arts classes.  Important:  If you go to the above link to search for the titles, make sure you search for the 2017-18 nominees.  The 2018-19 nominees are posted in February for the next school year.  

Students:  If you wish to participate, you need to read the three (3) books in one of the categories suitable for your grade level.  As you finish reading each of the three books in your chosen category or categories, you need to complete a quiz.  See Mrs. Lavery in the library to take each quiz.   All quizzes must be completed by Friday, March 23, 2018.  

All students who successfully complete the reading and quizzes will be rewarded by a dessert party during lunch on Wednesday, March 28, when they will vote on their favorite book in their category.  AOM's voting results are then sent to the state level committee.  The statewide awards are announced in May.  This is a great program where only students vote on the winning books. 

There are a limited number of copies in the library.  If you participate, please read the books promptly so that they become available for others.  If you have any questions, please contact me via School Loop email.
