The Media Connection - Library Media News from Ms. Arax

Greetings Felegy Staff! See below for helpful information:


1) I have reached out to each grade level team so that I can train teachers on helpful online resources that you can access through our PGCPS library catalog. Keep your eyes peeled for e-mails with meeting times for your grade level trainings.


2) Letters to parents are going out next week explaining the Media Program and book check out processes. I will be passing them out to each classroom teacher and have both English and Spanish versions of the letter.


3) Resources for you:

a) Library of Congress Resources: Today in History, Hispanic Heritage & Folklife Collections

b) Education Highlights from the 2016 National Book Festival

c) Message to Teachers from U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera


4) Reminder about online resources through the Public Library: Check the informational e-mail I sent on 9/8 and see below for student login information:


Students can access their LINK account by visiting the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System website or downloading the PGCMLS app. To sign-in, students must add their 9-digit student identification number to PGCPS and use the last four digits of their identification number as the PIN. For example, username: PGCPS100100100

PIN: 0100 Students can borrow up to three library materials at a time with the same PGPCS + 9-digit student identification number account number and pin.


5) Hispanic Heritage Month: Check out our online resources such as World Book and Culture Grams to support student learning and your teaching. See below for log in instructions and let me know if you need support. Also, explore the Media Center for related book displays throughout the month.
