Next week, in honor of Cinderella & Rockerfella, we will have dress up days for primary students and teachers in grades PK-5! Please contact Mr. Cal at email@example.com or Ms. Romero at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Here is the proposed APA Style Guide for grades 6-12 as discussed in the Tuesday meeting. Any feedback is appreciated and must be emailed to me by Friday, March 1. Do NOT distribute to students, please. Thank you!
Teachers in grades 2-5, please remind your student council rep they will have a meeting during lunch on Wednesday. If they have rehearsal for production with Ms. Heidi, have them come to the library sometime in the morning to let me know. Thanks!
There will be a cart of FREE adult fiction books to look through in the PAC on Friday! I will be adding books to it morning and afternoon, so check early and often. These are all titles I have deleted from our adult fiction section due to age, lack of patron interest, and condition.
There will be a book giveaway in front of the library on Wednesday, January 30, during 3-way conferences. These are former donations that did not meet our selection criteria or are former library books that have been deleted from the library system. There are books in English, German, Chinese, and Korean. Most of the books are for adults, but there are some for children, also.
Need help finding resources for a project or assignment? Not sure how to properly cite your sources? Help is available! Come to the library after school every Wednesday (3:15-4:15) for help with research and APA citations. As an added bonus, Ms. Lenk will also be there to assist with any EE questions!
Whoo-hoo! You can checkout and read ebooks from Overdrive/Sora once again, thanks to our wonderful IT department. Your username AND password are your ID number found on your ID card. Parents, if you are unable to login using your ID number, please send me an email at email@example.com letting me know so I can create an account for you. Stop by the library with any questions!
The library will be open tomorrow, Saturday, January 12, from 10:00-12:00.
Everyone is currently having issues with logging into Overdrive/Sora for ebooks. We are looking into it and will let you know when it is resolved!
Use WebPath Express to search educator-approved websites, then focus the results by grade-level and lexile! You do NOT need to be logged in to the library website to use, and it’s accessible by everyone…students, parents, teachers, etc. I’ve attached directions for you to try it out, and have so far shown grades 3-5 how to use it. Let me know if you would like me to come into any classrooms to work on this!
Need a quiet place to study? Need some books for winter break? Need a break from your family? The library will be open from 10:00-12:00 on Saturday.
The library will be a “quiet zone” for the next two weeks, with computers and phones to be used for educational purposes only and noisy conversations to be held elsewhere. The quiet zone begins Monday!
Doing research online and bummed because you can’t access a research paper without buying it? (Make sure you’ve looked in EBSCO first!) Worry no more! Install this Chrome extension to find legal, full-text PDFs of over 20 million research articles.
- Make sure every reference in your reference list is matched somewhere in your paper, either in sentence form or in-text citation. If it’s not in your paper, it shouldn’t be on your Reference List.
- The IB requires that you add the access date for all online references…you will need to do this manually! Here is an example:
Bratton, K. (2018, January 3). Where have all the flowers gone? Bayside High News, p. 4. Retrieved on August 23, 2018, from
Stop by the library with questions or see you Thursdays at our EE/PP Support Sessions!
Here are the logins and passwords for the various sites the school subscribes to that will be helpful in your research.
