MB Henderson Media Center

Start of a new school year

Welcome new and veteran staff and teachers!

Welcome to our great learning community! I am Barbara Dowell, the library media specialist. This year, the Henderson Library Media Center promises to be even more of a support for the students, teachers, and parents. As always, the media center provides quality reading programs and materials, book promotions, technology derived interactive lessons, research skills, collaborative student centered lessons, celebrations, and inquiry driven units of study. Feel free to stop in for a tour or search strategy demonstration of our online catalog and other web based products. Also I would love to hear your ideas about how I can assist in helping to reinforce curriculum standards and objectives. I am looking forward to meeting your class as well.

Please follow the weekly library schedule that will be placed in your box each Friday.
