Media Center Highlights

Makerspace

Big image

Last year, we remodeled an area of our library and created a Makerspace. The area includes a LEGO wall, art table, and dry erase table. We added K'Nex, Snap Circuits, origami paper, duct tape, and more! Students are able to come in to get their creative juices flowing as they work on various projects. This year, students continue to visit this area to create, invent, and build!

2016-17 South Carolina Junior Book Award (SCJBA) Nominees

Students at Northwest Middle are encouraged to participate in the South Carolina Book Award Program sponsored by the South Carolina Association of School Librarians. The purpose of this program is to encourage students to read quality contemporary literature and to honor the authors of the winning books chosen by students across the state of South Carolina. Students must read a minimum of three titles from the list of 20 Junior Book Award nominees. Voting takes place right before the state deadline in February. The three books below are just a glimpse of the twenty available titles.
