RIDGEFIELD — After Battle Ground Public Schools received a large donation of Disney/Hyperion books, the district donated 40 of the boxes to Ridgefield School District libraries.
In addition to being borrowed, there are enough books to give some away as prizes.
At Union Ridge Elementary, the reading incentive program is called Library Ninjas. Ninjas model good library behavior, encouraging students to be stealthy and silent as they seek out books. The program also has an element called “Ninjas Read” that encourages students to read new books each month. A bulletin board outside the library is loaded with brightly colored worksheets showing the students’ reading choices.
