Book Fair

As I write this, our book fair is wrapping up its last night. We close our doors tomorrow morning, November 17. I am always excited for it to come, and even more excited for it to leave. I think we've had a pretty successful fair, and I hope to put books in your mailbox tomorrow morning. Thanks for your support.

New Website

I hope by now you've had a chance to take a look at our new website. We are working on overhauling the library websites in all four buildings. Our goal is for consistency across the buildings. You will find AR, AR Bookfinder, and Booktalks under Reading. You will find Databases, Badgerlink and EasyBib under Researching. Learning includes links you would use in class, such as Teacher Websites, Odyssey and Learning. com. Creating is all about our Makerspace, and Teaching includes links for staff. Connecting is how students send me messages. I would welcome any feedback. Thanks!


The Adopt-A-Shelf program will be going on again this school year. Currently, we have 18 students signed up. Students pick a shelf that they will be responsible for, and they will devote time to shelving books on that shelf, straightening, and shelf-reading. This year, we will have a check-in sheet to see how frequently students are working. If you know a student who you think would like to participate, please direct them to the link on the media center homepage.
