LMS Library Corner
September 2017 Edition
Lisa and I have been so excited to kick off a new school year in the LMS library! Our already beautiful library has had a bit of a face lift over the summer--we've added a comfortable new seating area for students, replete with a wipeboard table and a magazine spinner; brand new desktop computers for the library computer lab and side computer stations; and even a brand new library website to match the school's new website. Plus, no library would be complete without new books... we also had over 20 boxes of beautiful new books this summer!
In order to introduce our 7th graders to the library (and reorient our 8th graders), Lisa and I have been conducting library orientations through English classes. This has been a great opportunity for us to get to know our students a bit better. Since we wrapped up with our orientations this week, all 1300+ LMS students should now be familiar with our library and its resources!
If you are interested in finding out a bit more about our library program, we recommend exploring our new library website and perusing our LibraryThing virtual shelf. The library website is the best way to find out about library events, new books, and research-related resources. Some other avenues we will use to communicate information this year: Twitter (@LMS1ibrary ), bi-monthly Library Corner newsletters posted in the KIT, and Blackboard. Please feel free to contact us by email (best!) or phone if you ever have any questions!
