Titan Library Newsletter

2013-2014 First Six Weeks Wrap-Up

Trying out Smore

This is Titan Library's first newsletter. Thanks for checking it out! It has been created using www.smore.com, a website I discovered on a library list serv. After taking a look at the site, I thought it would be great for both classroom and library use. I am hoping to keep a newsletter going throughout the year, updating students and teachers on library events, cool (free!) web 2.0 tools, and more.
