Happenings in the McClain

Whew! We've Been Busy!

There has been lots of hustle and bustle in the library during the month of October. Mrs. McClain worked with Mrs. Allen's 6th grade students researching ancient history. The students worked with print and online general encyclopedias, and laid the groundwork for a future project. Mrs. Allison just returned from the Tennessee Association of School Librarians annual conference, and she has been busy cataloging and processing a bunch of new print materials. Some of the new titles are listed below. Stop by the library and check them out!
