The fall Scholastic Book Fair is scheduled to open October 9th. Please join us in this celebration of books and reading.

Checkout the coding leader boards for the micro:bits challenge and the Scratch coding challenge. Our coding corner is available on a drop-in basis.

The EMS parent group generously donated micro:bits to the library for students wanting to experiment with coding. These are available for checkout upon request.

The library has again formed a readers advisory group. We're hoping that this provides many opportunities for students to be involved in book and resource selection and also in planning activities for the library. (see photo)

The Coding for Girls Camp, held in October is now full. Watch for more opportunities throughout the year.

Students are invited to take part in our Golden Sower reading challenge. Read as many nominated books as you can and get your picture on the wall. Voting will take place in April. 

6th and 7th graders opened the school year receiving information about the library and their Google accounts. Check out the picture to the left of the 7th grade scavenger hunt.

The Elkhorn MS Twitter Page is now live. Be sure to follow for all the latest updates!

Check out the picture below. The Computer Club is using the library space after school to test out their coding skills on 4 mini drones


8th Grade Chromebooks have now been distributed. Please report any problems to the library.
