From the Library

Get ready for fun at every turn because Summer with the Library is back! Starting June 1, readers and adventurers of all ages can sign up for the free Summer with the Library program and open the door to a whole season of possibilities.

Two ways to Sign up:

  • Sign up via the Beanstack website (dpls.beanstack.org/reader365), or download the Beanstack app from your app store, to track reading and activities.
  • Pick up a paper reading and activity log, available at all Deschutes Public Library locations.

    Kids and teens get a book and adults get a reusable tote just for signing up. Complete a reading and activity log and get another prize—including unique bookmarks—and be entered for a chance at great grand prizes, including puppets, books, and STEM kits for kids, and gift cards for teens and adults.

    Summer is even better with friends! This summer the library and other community organizations are teaming up to bring fun and learning to a neighborhood near you. Check out Library on the Go locations below to find out where we’ll be sharing free books, fun games, prizes, and more.

School Wide Character Trait: Mindset


Our character trait for the month of May is Growth Mindset. Having a growth mindset: Loves a challenge and sees failures as a way to grow, learn and stretch out abilities. A fixed mindset: avoids a challenge and assumes that character, intelligence and creative ability are unchangeable. Thanks to the neurplacity of our brains, we can change our mindset. Here is a helpful article from The Greater Good called, Three Mindsets that can Help Students Succeed. I also really enjoy The Big Life Journal and Podcast for helping kids with their growth mindset! Last but not least, my favorite book right now for reading to k-5 students is, After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat.

Be Well,

Heidi Thomas
