Library Learning Center

Welcome to the Library where Readers can DISCOVER, IMAGINE, and DREAM BIG

Hey Amazing Readers!  Your library assignment for this week is to read the great books that went home with you in the packets! 

If you want to do more reading go to the SORA app once you have logged in the first time, it should just open for you. 

If you didn't login when it was taught at school, the instructions are on the main page at Riley.slcschools.org.  Just use your login and get reading.  Many of the books are audio books and are free. 

You can also use your library card to check out free ebooks and audiobooks too! 

One last amazing place to explore this week and over Spring Break is storyline online at: https://www.storylineonline.net/books/hula-hoopin-queen/.  Here is a book I recommend for you!  Read 20 minutes a day everyday and be sure to read online as well!!!  Hugs from the Library!  -Mrs. Edgley, Your Library Guru
