Battle of the Books

This year our team will compete with over 16 MNPS Middle Schools in the

Battle of the Books. They have read 20 books and will battle with questions related to the titles. Last year DuPont Tyler placed 3rd. The big day is May 15th at the

Nashville Public Library.

School Library Month

During the month of April we are celebrating with the Library Challenge. Students that complete 10 of the 12 challenges will be entered into a prize drawing sponsored by Limitless Libraries. They are giving away 16 iPad Minis!! Please encourage you students to stop by the library and find out more information.

Technology Tip of the Day

Sometimes you locate a great picture/article and need to copy only part of it. Print Screen has been around for a long time, but the new Snipping Tool in Windows 7 has many more features. You can find it under the start menu or hidden under Accessories. I frequently use the Snipping Tool. Another option is to download JING from the KBox.

If you need help or more information about these tools, please let me know.
