New info and resources courtesy of your 7B librarian

1. LIBRARY PURCHASES - still time to put in requests!

I have some remaining funds available to spend on print books, electronic books, DVDs and/or audiobooks from Follett. If you have any requests, please let me know as soon as possible.

2. TRANSGENDER ISSUES - Spotlight on library books

Transgender issues have been in the news quite a bit lately. Below are three award-winning Seven Bridges library books that address the topic. The first is nonfiction and the other two are fiction. Click each title below for more info.

3. PRIMARY SOURCES - great new resource

The Digital Public Library of America has put together over 100 sets of primary source documents for students. Each set includes a topic overview, ten to fifteen primary sources, links to related resources, and a teaching guide.
