@ Your Library Media Center

WEST LIMESTONE HIGH SCHOOL~ October 16, 2017 EDITION

FYI~ @ Your Library Media Center


  • West Limestone Media Center uses a blended schedule allowing flexible scheduling so class, small group, and individual patrons have unlimited physical and intellectual access to resources throughout the day.
  • Our hours are Monday - Friday from 7:35 -3:15.
  • The media center provides flexible, real, and virtual access to a wide range of informational resources. We provide access to the Alabama Virtual Library from nine Internet workstations and wireless access for student Macbooks. Students may check out two books at one time if they do not have any overdue books. The check-out time is two weeks, but students may renew materials as needed. Some reference books may be checked out overnight. Others are restricted to library use only.
  • Recommendations for new library materials are appreciated & welcomed. Please be sure to let us know if you need something ordered.
Do you need a book to support an idea, lesson, or topic? Please let me know. I will add it to the consideration file and order it for you. It is my pleasure to help you in any way that I can.

SEARCH OUR ONLINE PUBLIC ACCESS CATALOG @ SCHOOL OR @ HOME

There's an app for that!

Teachers and staff who are interested in apps specifically geared for students with autism might want to take a look at the following free app:

It lists apps that are recommended for using with children on the autism spectrum (some are free, others are not).

Spotlight on New Resources:

LIFE, ANIMATED (DVD)

If you want to get kids' attention, show them how an issue affects real people. Check out the new DVD LIFE, ANIMATED. A moving documentary that captures the emotional story of an young man with autism, and his lifelong love of Disney movies that helped him to process the world and communicate with the people he loves. Documentaries are great visual and audio literacy resources for middle school classrooms.
