Welcome to the
Hi! I am
Ashley Hunt, the Library Media Specialist at Southside. Reading is such an
important skill for our students to learn. I don't want students from
Southside to just know HOW to read, I want them to LOVE
to read, and that is what I strive for every day!
facts about our library:
library is open from 7:50-3:00 each day.
visit the library at least once each week, but they may checkout as often as
Kindergarten and 1st Grade students may check out 1 book at a time.
Grade students may check out 2 books at a time.
We have 2
book fairs each year - one in the fall and one in the spring.
lots of contests, challenges and activities in the library, so stay tuned
for our next fun opportunity!
Battle of the Books
Harrison County Elementary Schools host a competition called Battle of the
Books. Throughout the year students read books from either the Primary or
Intermediate battle lists. The lists are made by the Library Media
Specialists and contain some of the BEST BOOKS EVER for kids to read! Each
spring, Primary and Intermediate teams are selected and compete against the
other elementary schools to see which school really
knows their books!
