Free adult fiction books available in the PAC!

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.

Book Giveaway on Wednesday

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.

Research & citing help

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!

Overdrive/Sora is now working again!

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 angelaromero@nanjing-school.com letting me know so I can create an account for you. Stop by the library with any questions!

WebPath Express – a better way to search than Google

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!

Library – a quiet place to study

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!

EE and PP students – Reference reminders!

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
