Once again, we are looking forward to sharing the SC Picture Book Award Nominees with our prek - second grade students and the SC Children's Book Award Nominees with our 3rd - 5th grade students. We challenge all 3rd - 5th grade students to read 5 of the award nominees and take a short assessment. These students will be invited to a voting party in February! There will be some surprises!

Reward Awesome Classwork with Student Makerspace Time!

We are looking forward to student's using our Library Makerspace! Currently we have Lego Video Stories with a simple 3 step storyboard, bookmark decorating, kinex, a couple of puzzles, origami and a few others available. All Teachers (PK - 5) may reward students with MakerSpace time! Teachers must send a note stating the student is there to use Makerspaces, the time the student was sent from class and the time he/she should return. If a pair of students are sent, they may choose to record each other giving a book talk or showing off their Makerspace work! Please, let's use this awesome resource to reward our students! Groups of up to 4 students may be sent at a time. Makerspaces will open the week after Labor Day!
