Library Hours for Students: 7:30 a.m. -- 3:00 p.m. (except Thursday, minimum day, closed after school).
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 to all students. We are promoting the program via the English Language Arts classes.
Students: If you wish to participate, you need to complete the bottom portion of the Contract for Participation form (attachment in locker on left side) and turn it in to the library. Book titles and categories are listed on this form. As you finish reading each of the three books in your chosen category, you complete the CYRM Judge's Rubric (attachment in locker on left side) and turn these in to the library also. All rubrics must be turned in by Friday, March 21. All students who successfully complete the reading and rubrics will be rewarded by a dessert party during lunch on Wednesday, March 26, 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.
For more information, see http://www.californiayoungreadermedal.org/ 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. Of course, you may find copies from other sources also, e.g., Dove City Library, or purchase if you wish. If you have any questions, please contact me via School Loop email.
