Vine Library Update

News about resources and happenings

Hope you enjoy this first issue of the Vine Library Update! I will do my best to get one out to you monthly (fingers crossed!) to fill you in on the resources and services that are available to you in the library.

Check-out RLA, ESL, and SPED!

As of now, all of our RLA, ESL, and SPED pullout classes have had their first library visits - wahoo!! (And have totally wiped me out of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.) You are more than welcome to send students for library business before homeroom and/or during class with a pass from you, as well.

New and Exciting Digital Resources!

We are so thrilled to be able to offer several new databases and digital resources this year. For those of you who were fans of TrueFlix, we've added two new products - FreedomFlix and ScienceFlix, geared to Social Studies and Science, but usable by everyone. Be looking for an email soon with screencast introductions to these new products and information on how you can earn PD credit just for learning more about them.

Content Area Instructional Support - We're Here to Help

I am more than happy to have any and all content area classes come to the library for information literacy and research lessons. Just shoot me an email or come see me with ideas and we'll find a time to get you in. Here's just a sample of past lessons:

  • choosing reliable sources
  • intro to primary and secondary sources
  • evaluating images as primary sources
  • citing sources
  • the research process

Display Your Content in the Library

There are plenty of display shelves available in the library for specialized collections. Please let me know if you'd like for me to feature a particular topic from one of your modules. This month, visit the Math display featuring both fiction and non-fiction books about math and math-related concepts.

Thanks for Reading!

Congratulations! Since you've read all the way to the bottom, we have a little treat for you. Swing by the library at your earliest convenience to claim your reward and have a great day!
