Library News for Teachers

February 2014

New books

We have added hundreds of new books (collectively) to our school libraries this past month. Don't forget to check out our new resources. When you search Destiny, remember to set your location to Greencastle School District. That way if your building library doesn't have the books you want, you can request them from another building.


Remember you can create resource lists in Destiny for books you would like to use every year. Not sure how to do this? Let me help!

World Book Online Resources

Don't forget our online databases when planning your lessons, units, or for student research!

Cool Tech Tool

Have a website you want your students to access, but it has a really long URL?

Try tinyURL.com.

This website lets you enter a long URL and it provides you with a short one that will redirect to the same page. For example: http://tinyurl.com/utsrt will take you to the same page as the long URL for the Under the Snow reader's theater script above.
