What's Been Happening This Month?

*We have extended our hours after students requested more library time in the mornings--we are now open at 6:50 am. Most evenings the library is staffed until 5 pm.

*We have been busy updating our VHS collection to DVDs, as well as augmenting the collection to meet student interest.

*Our back storage closet has been cleaned out, and Mr. Copatch's kids have taken away our old slide projectors, tape recorders, VCRs to build robots and other contraptions.

*Our media center is almost up and running, but without any advertising, we are already seeing our green screen being used frequently!

*Mrs. Miller has been busy giving feedback on college essays and helping seniors with the Common App.

*Our new library intern, Hannah Simmons, is helping with book orders, weeding our collection, and learning how to manage our technology.

*8th graders are learning the ins and outs of citations.

*7th graders are integrating technology with their book projects.

*9th graders ave been using the library as a makerspace for their presidential campaigns in Ms. Brusseau's class.

*Award-winning pieces of artwork from Sandwich Fair entries are decorating our walls.
