D97 Library News

December 2015

Thanks for visiting our monthly newsletter for all teachers, parents and community members of District 97. Each month, two teacher librarians collaborate to bring you great information highlighting the experiences our students have in our elementary school libraries. We hope you find this information useful, and we value any feedback that you care to share.

Let us know what you think!

We are so happy to have a wonderful partnership with the Oak Park Public Library!
