Welcome Back NWC Teachers, Students, and Families!

My name is Stacie Tharp and I am the Library Media Specialist at Northwest Crossing Elementary. This will be my 25th year as an educator and I am SO excited to see everyone again and to also welcome some new faces. My MAIN priority is to make ALL students feel welcome and to encourage a love of reading.

WHAT'S NEW IN THE LIBRARY?

This year, my theme is, "Find your Genre!"


All of the chapter books have been genrefied into the following categories: Adventure, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Humor, Mystery, Mythology, Novels in Verse, Realistic Fiction, Scary, Science Fiction, and Sports.


Last year, I submitted a survey to students and asked them what changes they would make to the library. The two recommendations I received was to make the library more colorful, and to make it easier to find books to read. This summer I decided to color-code the shelves by genre and I think they make the library a more colorful and welcoming place! Great suggestions students!

RESOURCE OF THE MONTH- SORA: YOUR PLACE FOR FREE EBOOKS AND AUDIOBOOKS!

Sora is a free app that allows NWC students to borrow eBooks and audiobooks from NISD's online library. All students need to do is log in with their student number and books are just a click away. For those familiar with the Overdrive app, Sora uses the same platform, but it is specially geared toward elementary students.
