Welcome Back!
I am so excited to see all of you!  We will have lots of fun in the library.  Remember, First Grade and Kindergarten will be checking out one book each week.  Be sure to keep your book in your backpack except when you are reading it.  That way, it will always be at school to return on library day.  If you forget to return your book, you will not be allowed to get another book until you either return the book or pay the cost of the book.  Lost books may be paid for through MySchoolBucks.com or funds can be brought to me.
 
Click the link below to access the Ben Bowen Destiny catalog to search for books in the library.  Click the FollettShelf orange tile and use the username and password First-Grade has learned to listen to Tumblebooks, Pebblego, and e-books.  (Hint: the username and password is where you go to look for books!)
 
 
 
Pebblego can now be reached through the following link.  See the November BBECC Express Newsletter for the username and password.
 
Tumblebooks can now be reached through the following link.  See the November BBECC Express Newsletter for the username and password.
