Welcome Back!

We've had a great first month of classes! All students have the opportunity to come to the library for a mini lesson and to check out library books on a weekly basis. As a way to ease ourselves back into school, all classes had time to refresh their memories about manners in the library along with taking care of library books. We have also read some great books that reinforce the importance of manners and book care along the way. My goal again this year is to strike a balance between the wonders of technology and the wonders of books. I have been ordering more and more e-Books over the past couple of years. We also subscribe to numerous databases that will assist students with research. I want students to be connected to the library no matter where they are 24/7.

I have created a Symbaloo which will take students directly to the different databases . Each square tile links to a different website. The tiles are marked with words and images to explain what each links to. This Symbaloo will continue to change and grow as I add more websites and resources. Fourth and fifth grade students were given user names and passwords to access these resources. Please feel free to contact me at for password information.

You are always welcome in our library and I encourage you to visit anytime.
