The Small Virtual Library

It's National Library Week!

Week of 4/5/2021

Welcome to the Small Virtual Library!

This week is National Library Week which celebrates our nation's libraries, library workers' contributions and promote library use and support.

It's also National Poetry Month so I have featured stories told in verse (poems) available on our online ebook platforms.

This week we have a video book recommendation from 8th grade ELA teacher, Ms. Clarke!

Don't forget: Click on the book covers to view the book trailers for each title.

Need something? Contact me via email (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore.) Join the library Blend page!

Can't find what your're looking for? You can request books (use the button below)to be added to Sora.

Happy reading and remember:
