Classes will not check out books the week of May 14th, unless items are needed for a class project. Bluestem may be checked out until the last week of school. A list of materials you have out will be delivered to your mailbox. Please review the list and let me know if you don’t think it is accurate or if you have lost any items. Please return all library materials as soon as you are finished with them. Thank you.


If you would like to see the Library Learning Center purchase specific books or professional material for next year, please e-mail Diane with titles or subject suggestions. Your ideas are always welcome.

GMail Change Message From Rodney Mack

"If anyone wants to try out the new gmail we have made it available to staff. Simply click on the settings gear in Gmail and select to switch. If you don' t like it you can switch back to regular. Just keep in mind eventually this will become the standard format. Once a few more people are used to it we will notify all staff. Some might stumble upon it on their own."!/
