6th Grade History Fair

Our library at Owen Middle School is frequently a busy place. Students come to the library before school to work on projects, use our Maker Space, play games, and hang out with friends. During the day, students come to library on passes to check out books and with classes for check out and for lessons. Three blocks each day, 8th grade students come to the library to take online classes for high school credit. Also, teachers are able to reserve the space for visitors and class activities. Finally, a volunteer uses library space twice a week to work with Mr. Munn's math students.
