D97 Library News

We LOVE Libraries!

Thank you for visiting the monthly newsletter for all teachers, parents, and community members Oak Park Elementary District 97. Each month, D97 teacher librarians collaborate to bring you useful information, and highlight a few things our students are learning in our libraries.

We enjoy feedback! This month's collaborating teacher librarians:

Kids InfoBits Database: A New D97 Subscription For All Families To Use!

  • The D97 Teacher Librarians have subscribed to Kids InfoBits as our own research database.
  • Kids Infobits contains full-text entries from encyclopedias and books, as well as from magazine and newspapers.
  • These are updated frequently, so it is already possible to read a news story from January 2018 using Kids Infobits. Try it!
  • Students should be able to access it at school without a password. The password for all to use at home is learn (same as our subscription to Britannica School Encyclopedia and Britannica Images)
