Bag of bags....

I have a relatively huge bag of bags (ths plastic shopping type) for students to use for their library books. The donations continue to roll in, greatfully!

This is a self-serve station and children have loved the alliterative "big, black bag of book bags" title.

This also supports the lessons around book care, and keeping books protected from liquids in general.


I have purchased a set of Science eBooks and have linked the sign in page under the teacher tab on the Library page.
From the Vendors site, you can see all the titles we own.
They also show up in the catalog as "eBooks"-- you cannot see them from the catalog, but need to go to the vendors site.

I have wrapped up the library 101 lessons-- all students have been introduced (or reintroduced) to the catalog and how our library in newly organized. I am 'tweaking" the collection so that students can most easily find what they are looking for.

If you students have book requests, please encourage them to use the link on the library page (especially third and fourth graders. This is a most efficient way for us to manage the books students want.

Marieta has been out but will return on Monday!

Do you know what this is? It is a highly magnified fly foot. Cool, huh?
