Welcome to the Shoshone Schools

Library News



It is amazing, how quickly the school year is winding down! It is almost time for our final Scholastic Book Fair of the year. This one gives all profit to the students of Shoshone with their BOGO promotion. In order to maximize our contribution to the library and host a Buy One Get One Free book fair, the school has to host two regular book fairs throughout the year. So far, we have managed to raise $3400 Scholastic Dollars this year, from our previous two fairs. ALL proceeds from the Book Fair go directly towards the purchase of new books, bookmarks, prizes, and other items used in the library, using Scholastic Dollars. 

Our BOGO fair should be here and ready to go the week of May 8th-11th. We will run during regular school hours, from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. We will be open on Monday night, May 8th from 5:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. To shop online go to www.scholastic.com/bookfairs and search for Shoshone Elementary.  Online shopping will be open for a week after the fair. 



Overdrive is Here! 

odCan't get to the library to check out or return books on time? We have you covered! Overdrive has arrived. Anyone with access to a smart device may now sign up for free eBooks, audiobooks, music, and more. If you are a student or employee at the Shoshone School you can stop by the school library and have Mrs. Owens help get you set up. Otherwise, all you need is a Shoshone Public Library card and a few minutes to stop by the public library and talk to them about getting you set up to checkout books for free, with never a worry about lost, damaged, or overdue items. You will have access to the Idaho Digital Consortium (20 libraries across the state) bank of books. There are thousands of titles to choose from! Hurry in today to start your Overdrive reading adventure.
