We are always updating our website and are on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest !

Look What's Been Going on in December!

*We have finally updated our VHS movies to DVD format, while also adding high-interest, culturally relevant DVDs to the collection, making it accessible to students. Popular titles? Argo, Les Miserables, Lord of the Rings, and Silver Linings Playbook.

*We assisted with a great deal of research from the Supreme Court to Victorian England to Madagascar cockroaches and helped with lots of writing from individual Kite Runner papers and college essays to 8th grade citations and Intro to Photography analytic essays.

*Our media lab is getting a great deal of use for podcasting, videoing, and photography!

*In conjunction with Ms. Eynon, we held our first Open Mic! The library filled up to listen to the mad talent that some of our students were brave enough to share. Watch the calendar--this is going to be a monthly event!

*We began the laborious process of weeding out our reference section.

*All of the library computers have been updated with Adobe Photoshop and Windows Movie Maker to help students with classroom projects.
