This is SUPER year in the LMC. Our theme is Reading is my Superpower and we have super readers all around the library. We've rearranged the space so that more students and classes can use the LMC simultaneously. Thanks to the success of last spring's book fair, this summer we were able to add over 100 books (print and digital) to our collection. Also, because of the generosity of the PTA we were able to buy a new video camera, microphone, and green screen for students and staff to use to create videos. Click here to see the first video created by Badger Studios.
Do you have a new tablet? Use it to check out our eBook collection. We have two eBook platforms this year - Follett BryteWave and Overdrive. Please see our eBook tab for directions on how to access our collections.
Students in 3rd - 5th grades have learned how to be good digital citizens. If you would like more information on how to encourage this at home, please check out the following websites.
