D34 Library Media Centers

April 2016

April Showers bring May flowers...

let's hope! This school year has flown by! How did it get to be April already? With so much to do towards the end of the year, what can we do in the library media center to take something off your plate? Can we pull books for you on a specific topic? Can we create a pathfinder of specific websites so the kids just don't google? Can we find magazine articles for you? Need space to spread out? Ask! We are here to help!

What's Going on this month?
