Smith Elementary Library News
Kindergarten will spend the first month of school learning about the library, proper library behavior, book care at school and home, and listening to great stories. Their first check out may not occur until October and for the first semester they check out one book. They will bring home a practice library book to learn responsibility of returning a book. Once they have successfully learned checkout and returns they get two books second semester.

Because the new platform is still being tweaked students may prefer the older format. Currently this seems to be the best site to place holds on books. Click on the Catalog tab and they may search here. They can customize their search for keyword, title, author, subject, or series in the traditional platform. The default search is keyword. I have taught them that is the broadest search as it includes anything that mentions their search term. Unless they know the title I've told them to choose a subject search to narrow the choices.
In the coming weeks we will be learning the new platform and discovering all that it has to offer!
