Library Maker Space Is Up and Running!

The Roark Library is changing! Starting Monday, October 19th, we'll have stations set up for students to have a chance to work with our new materials. Soon, kids will be learning in our new STEM area, fun stuff that will support what you are doing in the classroom.

Technology Teaser

We'll be SMASHING some apps in the library this six weeks. Students will use apps like Pic Collage, Skitch, and Doodle Buddy to work on vocabulary. If you have some vocabulary words that your students are working on in your classroom, please send me a list and I'll make sure they are in that station.

Monster Stories and Crafts

Stop by the library October 22nd, to hear some great Monster stories and make a few crafts in our Maker Space.

When: October 22nd 5:30-6:30

Where: Roark Library
