What's Happening in the Library?
- From the Claymont PANDA page (library webpage), click "eBooks".
- Then choose "Ebsco Non-Fiction", "Follett Shelf", or "TumbleBook Library".
- The only one that requires a password is Follett Shelf. This uses your Novell login info.
- Browse, read, enjoy!
When the library purchases eBooks, they are housed in Follett Shelf. There may be certain topics that your grade level researches every year such as Native Americans or states of matter. If you feel it would be beneficial for our library to own eBooks on certain subjects, let me know! Some eBooks are even sold in "infinite" amounts, meaning your whole grade level could check out and read the same book at the same time.
There's also a Follett BryteWave app which accesses Follett Shelf! Check out this free download for iOS, Android devices with Google Play, Nook HD/HD+, and Kindle Fire HD/HDX. Once in the app, use your Novell ID and our school's Follett link to login: https://wbb20044.follettshelf.com
For those ready to jump into more Googly fun, check out this introduction to Google Classroom! Post assignments, grade assignments, hold online discussions, and more!
Mark Twain Book Club!
The library is hosting a Mark Twain Book Club once a month, and YOU are invited! Read any of the Mark Twain nominees and come ready to eat your lunch and chat about the book! 4th grade meets from 12:20-12:40, and 5th grade meets from 12:35-12:55.
I do need one volunteer to switch or take my lunch duty shift (12:20-12:50) one day during December 15th-19th so the exact Mark Twain Book Club date can be finalized. If you are willing and able to cover my duty, please contact me asap. :)
Merry Christmas!! If you are looking for a good gift this holiday season, may I suggest books?
