Library Lowdown (week of 2/22/16)

News and Technology from the OCMS library

Important Announcements

  1. If you have a larger class and need more than 15 computers when you bring your classes to the library, book both the library and the library lab. That way, you can have enough computers.

Library Usage

During last week, 229 students visited the library with 13 classes and 60 students visited on their own.

Teaching and Planning with You!

Remember that Ms. Stellmann is available not only as a planning resource, but as a co-teacher. She can come to your classroom and teach lessons, assist with small group instruction, help you with finding differentiated resources, provide you with ideas for lessons or projects, or answer questions.

Tech Tool of the Week

Movie Poster Creator

This tool is super easy to use. You upload a picture, put in some text, and make a few choices to create your very own movie poster. I made this one in less than five minutes. Think of the project possibilities!

BCPL Resources

Did you know that BCPL (Baltimore County Public Library) offers BCPS wifi access and access to your H:/ drive? This is a great resource for students who do not have computers at home. Download this flyer for more information


Also, the Randallstown branch offers a great series of programs called Randallsteen, after school homework help, and free meal programs for students age 17 and under. For more information, see the branch's complete calendar of events.
