Coffee Back in the Library
Last year our Keurig coffee machine died unexpectedly. We spent the remainder of the year mourning it, but we have decided to be strong and move on.
There is a new Keurig hard at work in the Library office, and there are K cups ready to go! Right now there is a Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee that is also available; it's perfect for the crisp autumn mornings that are moving in now.
We also have green tea and Lemon Ginger tea.
Maker Madness is here!
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. At its core, the maker movement is about creating something out of nothing and exploring interests while learning from your own experiences, as well as sharing those experiences with others.
York Middle School is home to three makerspaces to encourage students and staff in all grades and areas of curriculum to think creatively and problem solve. The makerspace in the rear of the library is a low-tech steam lab, in which students create with a variety of materials ranging from Legos to cardboard. In order to keep our makerspace supplied, we are always accepting donations of household items such as:
-Popsicle Sticks (and other wooden pieces)
-Odds and Ends (spools, bottle caps, jars, springs, etc.)
-Paper Towel and Toilet Paper Tubes
-Old Decks of cards
We also appreciate donations of craft materials such as:
-Black Markers (Crayola or Sharpie)
-Duct Tape (Silver and patterned)
-Mini Hot Glue Sticks
We love when parents of our students get involved in our building, and the library has become a hustling hub of activity.
We appreciate any amount of time you're available to help, even an hour a week.
