What's Happening in the Library?

Shiloh Hills students have been working hard learning about author/illustrator Michael Dooling.  For several weeks in library classes, students created over 600 projects to display in the halls in preparation for the Author Visit in May. Fifth graders learned about immigration and Ellis Island, fourth graders read about young Thomas Edison and researched inventors, third graders researched George Washington's Army, second graders learned about automobile inventors, first graders about Irish immigration and kindergarteners learned about pirates!  Thanks to the sponsorship of the Shiloh Hills PTO, students were able to attend an assembly to meet Michael Dooling.  It was quite an exciting day!

Playaway Audiobooks

playaway1playaway2

We have some great audio resources at the Wilson Libraries including Playaways!  Playaway is the newest way to listen to a book and read along with it.  There is no need for a separate cassette or CD player since the entire book is tucked inside the player.

We have a variety of titles for each of our age groups.  These are extremely popular items, and the students are excited about using them.  They also know that if they are not responsible, they will lose the privilege of checking them out.  The teacher-librarians do not foresee any major problems, though it is possible that a Playaway unit may be lost.  When students and parents sign the Library Use Agreement at the beginning of the year, they have to option to choose whether or not they will be able to check out audiobooks on CD and/or Playaway.  When a student checks out a Playaway, he or she is responsible for all parts, which includes the case, Playaway audiobook unit, earphones, and lanyard. 

The replacement costs for lost or broken items are as follows:
Playaway audiobook unit: varies by title, usually between $40.00 to $75.00
Case with foam insert: $5.00
Earphones: $2.00
Lanyard: $1.00

The overdue fine for Playaways is $0.25 per day.  Students are encouraged to check out the accompanying book with the Playaway and read along with it.  If you want to see what Playaways are like, stop by during American Education Week or any other time of year.  We love visitors!
