• Hi! My name is Candace Newkirk and welcome to the Lemon Crest Library website! This is my 3rd year as the library assistant and sharing my love of reading. I grew up in East County and have currently lived in Lakeside for 13 years. I have been married for 12 years and my daughter is a 3rd grader at Lemon Crest and loves reading too.

    We have a school wide reading challenge called "Soaring To Success"! Kindergarten and 1st graders will turn in paper reading logs weekly. 2nd - 5th graders will be logging their minutes daily on a website called Reading Rewards www.reading-rewards.com. Their log in and password are the same. It is the first 3 letters of the students first name and the first 3 letters of their last name and their birthday. For example Jane Smith's birthday is January 13, so her login and password would be jansmi0113. Information has been sent home with all students. If you have any questions, please contact your student's teacher or myself. Rewards and incentives will be given through-out the year! In addition, a Barnes & Noble gift card drawing will be held about every 4 weeks for a chance to win 1 of 2 - $10 B&N gift cards! Every 100 minutes a student reads, their name gets put in the drawing. So, if a student reads 900 minutes in one month, their name gets put in 9 times!

    We will be having our annual Barnes & Noble Book Fair Wednesday, November 28th from 5:30 - 7pm at the Santee Trolley Square. A flier will be sent home in your student's backpack with more information. Please help support our library!

    Love Of Reading Week will start Monday, February 25, 2019 with fun activities planned all week, like a special guest author!

    Thank you for supporting your child's life long love of reading!
