Fantastic FVRL

24 students from Kent School signed up for the 'Choices' group called FANTASTIC FVRL. These young kids love books and reading so much, they chose learning about the Fraser Valley Regional Library over floor hockey, arts & crafts, nature study, and making movies. That is great! We spent our 4 sessions learning about the many features of the FVRL website; learning how to search for and reserve books, how to access animated story and nonfiction books [Bookflix], and how to search and read electronic chapter books [Tumblebooks]. One week we enjoyed FVRL learning stations in our own school library, exploring a range of materials brought in from FVRL. We read magazines, watched videos, read story books, and browsed some awesome nonfiction books. Some of these great books are on display in the library display case. Take a look! 

For our last 'Choices' class, today, we walked over to the Agassiz branch of the FVRL
We had a tour, learned about the history of libraries in the Fraser Valley, saw photos of the original traveling library bus, and had a chance to browse and sign out books. One lucky student won an FVRL hat and everyone was given a funny reading button. Thanks to all the kids for their fantastic participation and to Terrill Scott our library host. Fantastic FVRL!
