Calling Science, Math, and geography teachers…have I got a book for you!

So I found a cool book in the library that uses aspects of Earth such as tides, the affect of gravity on mass on different planets, earthquakes, etc to produce different kinds of graphs, tables, and timelines. Great examples are given, along with explanations of when to use different kinds of graphs. It’s written for 5th grade or so, and can be found downstairs at

10th Grade upstairs in cafeteria during lunch

MS/US teachers, as you know, 10th graders are now allowed in the cafeteria mezzanine during lunch (NOT break). As Katie said, no food, no technology, and no bags should be up there. If you are the person on BTT up there, students can check out library books either by the self-checkout computer that is up there, or they can bring books down to the primary library for checkout. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions!

Textbook checkout – check it out!

Teachers, did you know that you have the power to check student textbooks in AND out using your phone, iPad, and/or laptop?!? With a transition period coming up and students leaving, give yourself the peace of mind of KNOWING that your student has actually returned all of his or her textbooks before signing the clearance form. Music, IT, and Design staff are also able to check materials such as instruments and cameras out to students. This amazing power is brought to you by the Follett Destiny app. Want more information? Click on the link for directions, and remember, you can always ask your friendly neighborhood librarian!
