Welcome to the Elementary Library at Bigfork Schools!
My hope is that your child will find our library space welcoming and a place where they can explore great books, be curious and grow as readers and learners! Feel free to reach out anytime with your questions or to just share some good news! I am here to support you and your child.
A thank you note from Mrs. Bonner!
Thank you all from the bottom of my book loving heart for your support of our recent BOOK FAIR! Because of your purchases, we are able to add new books to our library collection and I am thrilled that students will have books to read at home. ENJOY
The online book fair is open through November 9th! Purchases made online also benefit our school.
Battle of the Books
Bigfork students in grades 4 through 8 gets the opportunity to create teams and participate in Montana Battle of the Books. The teams typically read 10-12 book titles over a period of time, and test their knowledge about the books in school battles. The the qualifying teams prepare for the state competition and another round of book battles. Pictured here is our 5th grade team who qualified for the state competition in 2023.
Yearly Book Fair
Bigfork Elementary and Middle School library hosts a Scholastic Book Fair every year. This is a great opportunity for our students to browse among titles for their favorite books and genres and to discover new reads! Not only does it encourage and inspire our students to read, it is also an important fundraiser for our school library so that we can continue to provide excellent books for our students throughout the school year. The Book Fair is usually held in November, during the Parent/Teacher conferences. Information will be sent home with students ahead of each fair.
