On the Verge
It's hard to believe that we are already close to the end of the first marking period for the 2020-2021 school year. Here we are -- a few weeks away from the next stage of this unexpected journey.
In any other year, by this time we would be well underway with showcasing new books, welcoming the class of 2024 through our LMC Freshman Orientation, and conducting various Makerspace activities at lunchtime. The great news is that we do have lots of new ebooks for you to discover through SORA and MackinVIA (look for the links below). In addition to eBooks, you'll want to spend some time visiting our, Hispanic American and Banned Books Virtual Reading Rooms. You will find them in this edition of the newsletter and on the LMC webpage. The rooms are not "live" this month, but stay tuned. We are working on it!
While we don't know what to expect as we go from fully virtual to hybrid cohorts, the WOHS LMC is open and you have access not just to all our digital resources (databases & ebooks), but to us as well. We are an email away!
Your trusty librarians,
Ms. Matz & Mrs. Tindall

New this year: Virtual Reading Rooms !
When is a Virtual Reading Room like a China Shop? When you can "look but don't touch"! The titles on the shelves are not linked to content as of yet. We plan to add links as we get closer to being back in school in person. Until then, enjoy judging the books by their covers!
