I've began using Edshelf last year with classes to provide additional resources for teachers to share with students in transfer tasks. I added some of the popular web2.0 tools and apps for digital storytelling and project presentations on our library's blackboard page.

I have also created my own collection of favorites during our librarians professional development session. See Below:

MH Book Fair in December

We will hold our winter book fair in MH Library during the week of December 18-22.
We hope this fair will be a great celebration of reading and provide an opportunity for reluctant and advance readers to find popular books to own at sale prices.
Our profit will be used to purchase books for our nonfiction collection and for library programming.
