LibTech Matters @ PCMS

October 2015

There is a chill in the air but things are ON FIRE in the library!

Fall has always been my favorite season; apple picking, soccer games, and the crisp air. This fall there is even more to be excited about at PCMS - the library is bustling with excitement as we transform the space with new expectations, new furniture, new Chromebooks and lots of new books! I have had the pleasure of already working with many teachers and students and a brand new crew of library interns. My hope is that as the year continues, I will have many more opportunities to work with all our teachers and students on both research and technology projects. This newsletter includes several resources that I hope you find useful. As always, if you have any questions, please ask! ENJOY!
