Be The Change!!!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!! I know the January newsletter got off to a late start, so I combined January and February. We added over 100 new books to our collection, some of the highlights are below. For the complete collection, check out the Destiny Quest link on the library homepage.

2018: Read 18 Books in 2018

Are you up for a new challenge? The library encourages students to check out books for independent reading. Book an appointment with Ms. Bayer and I can show your students how to download ebooks and select the right book for them using our catalog and browsing our shelves. To read an ebook, click on Destiny Discover. See the librarian for the user name and password.

On Feb. 21-22, you can participate in: Our Senses: An Immersive Experience, and during our spring break, April 3rd and 4th, you can take: Understanding Global Trends and Biodiversity. More details available on the AMNH website.
