Library Thoughts for the Week

Each week, during our physical time away from school, I will be sharing some information that might be helpful for parents at home to do with their children or for students to do on their own. I will include the information for the Live Stream book that I will read every Friday as well as a link to an online book they can listen to. I will also include an activity that can be done at home and links to resources that I find interesting. This is meant to be a resource NOT homework!

Library Book Return - Instructions to Come!

Thank you to all of you have reached out regarding returning library books! At this time, we are waiting on instruction from the District about how we are to coordinate library book and chromebook return. Please put library books in a safe place for now. If you need a reminder on which books your students have out, please email me at with your student's name.
