Library News


 Welcome to the Shoshone School Library! The library is the recipient of two grants this school year. We received one grant from the Seagraves Foundation, that actually carried over for two years. The second grant is from the Idaho Commission for Libraries. Mrs. Owens has been busy purchasing new books for the library, both for the Kindle and library bound copies. Ask your students what books they’ve been reading! Twenty minutes reading each night significantly improves your child's academic performance, especially if you read with them! Check out the list of upcoming events to look for in the library this year. Happy Reading!  

October 22-25th: Scholastic Book Fair

     8-4 Every Day, 5-8 pm Wednesday and Thursday during parent teacher conferences.

     Students that come visit the Book Fair with a parent or guardian will be entered into a drawing.

November 14: I Spy Leaders Family Reading Night

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.
