Library Happenings

We have changed the way students sign in and out of the library. Students now use a Google form and Chromebooks to sign in and out. It is a great tool because you can log in and track students you are sending to the library. This will eliminate the need for separate Google sheets for each study hall. If you have any questions on how to find the responses, please email me, call me, or stop by the library for a quick tutorial.

This month we are celebrating the release of the new Star Wars film! Our front display features our students favorite SciFi books. Stop by to see what our students are reading and maybe pick up something for yourself!

We are also featuring December Holidays Around the World. Did you know that Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism all have major religious holidays during the month of December? Stop by the library and learn a little more about these celebrations.

What is Weeding?

Weeding is the term we use in the library for going through our collection and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. We are currently in the process of weeding the nonfiction books. If there are any specific books or topics you would like us to keep or replace, please let us know. Thank you!
