GIS LMC Updates

Welcome to Missy Hippich!! Missy is now working daily in our media center, and will be overseeing the media center on the days that I am at Green Middle School. I am thrilled to have her become a part of the library staff. Stop by and say Hello!

Email Material Requests - Thank you for emailing when you have a material request or SRI issues. If requesting materials, please include the date that materials are needed. Email is the most efficient way to communicate what you need.

Purchase Requests - This is the time of year to share your purchase requests. As the curriculum is changing, please email me any topics that you would like to see extended by library materials. You give me the topic, I will do the research to see what is availble for purchase.

ebooks - Please remember that we have an ebook shelf that is readily available. Visit the media center webpage via the GIS homepage. Select the ebook link. You will find a variety of material to extend Math, Social Studies, Language Arts, etc. These books can be viewed with any device that has internet connection, and can be projected onto whiteboards for full class use. Please let me know if you would like any further instruction.
