Sadler Means Library Newsletter

September 2015

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to Sadler Means YWLA! I am Miss Cantu, the new librarian for this school year. My goal for this newsletter is to assist students and staff with finding resources they need, as well as keeping everyone up to date with library news and events.

As of September 3rd, 6th, 7th and 8th grade ELA classrooms have received library orientation and have had the opportunity to check books out. Many students have taken advantage of their library time; we have consistently had a full house in the morning before school starts and during both lunch periods.

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and having a great school year!
