Seeking Ways to Supplement Your Classroom Library?
The Prince William County Public Library System offers reciprocal borrowing. ​This means not only can you get a free PWPLS library card if you work or reside in Prince William County, Manassas, or Manassas Park, but you can also get a free library card with the following library systems:
 
Virginia: Fairfax County, Arlington County, Loudoun County, City of Falls Church, City of Alexandria, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, and Fauquier County Public Library.
 
Maryland: Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Frederick County and Charles County.
 
Washington DC: D.C. Public Library. 
 
You’ll have access to all library resources for which you have a card, including eBooks, digital magazines, and Premium Sites. Yes, you’ll have to physically go to another library system to obtain their card, but then you can use it from home to access their online resources as well as the Prince William County Public Library System!

 

 
One School, One Book Encourages Schoolwide Reading at Tyler Elementary
Tyler Elementary has been implementing the program, One School, One Book for the first time with great success.

As part of participation in the program, each family received a copy of The Chocolate Touch. Each night families read aloud one chapter together. The school webpage provides vocabulary and discussion questions to partner with their reading. In addition, the staff at Tyler has created a YouTube playlist of staff reading chapters.
Daily, students participate in a trivia question and win a prize. Each morning, the baskets are brimming with answers and almost every student participating!

One book has made quite an impact on students, with parents reflecting this experience has helped students get motivated and excited to read!
