STEM in the Library

The roller coaster was completed with success-depending on the day. The kids did a great job building it and figuring out the problems when it did not work properly.

New Books

We receive new books every month from Junior Library Guild. These are the new books for January.


Susan and I are here to help you. We would be glad to help with research, the use of the technology in the library and lab, or to help your students check out books. If you want to do a project that is different, give us the idea and we will help you plan. We are willing to come to your PLCs to show you what is available in the library for your subject area.
