The Library Lowdown

September

iPads

As you most of you know, the library is now the proud owner of an iPad cart with 32 iPads and a cool interactive t.v.! We are super excited to explore our new technology and collaborate with teachers along the way. If you are interested in using the iPads for your class, please read the following guidelines.


1. iPads stay in the library. If you would like to work with them, you must sign up to visit the library.

2. Sign up for the iPads here - https://docs.google.com/a/roundrockisd.org/forms/d/1yaPrvjhJvfOZzV7iz2MUta1A8Qz7SGgtNswsUE3_U9Y/viewform

This link can also be found on the library page under Online Resources. Please check the library calendar, found on the home page of the library website, to make sure the dates you want are available.

3. Once you have completed the form, I will contact you to plan the unit/activity. In order to keep track of the iPads and increase student responsibility, seating charts will be REQUIRED in order to use the iPads. These can be found here:

Please fill out one for each class BEFORE you come to the library in order to speed up the process of handing out iPads.

Poster making and laminating!

We know everyone loves the convenience of the poster maker and the laminator! We love them too (sometimes). However, this year we are implementing some new guidelines in order to reduce the amount of time diverted from our library duties. Please read the new guidelines and if you have any questions, let us know.


Allow a 1 week turn around. That means plan ahead.


Laminating - Place anything needed to be laminated on top of our filing cabinets in the library office. Please place a sticky note on it with your name and date left for laminating. You will get an e-mail when it is done.


Posters- Send your poster requests to Cherri via email. Indicate the number you need and whether you would like it laminated.
