Welcome to the Ike Library, where students are encouraged to think, create, share, and grow. Each day, you can find us thinking critically, using technology, conducting inquiry projects, enjoying literature, making creative products, collaborating with one another, and sharing what we learn.

As we are nearing the close of the 2017-2018 school year, here are a few of the awesome things that have been happening in the library this year:
In November we hosted Sequoyah-nominated author Lois Ruby.  It was fabulous and Lois and her husband were so impressed with our library program, our teachers, and our enthusiastic students.
In December, we moved into our fabulous, HUGE library space.  We have so much space and technology now! 
In February, we had our super hero-themed family literacy night.  It was so much fun that even Wonder Woman and Spider-man stopped by!
In March, we were given two Norman Public Schools Foundation grants, totaling $2000! Mrs. Kreft used those grants to buy graphic novels and also and entire classroom set of Ozobots. We also hosted a school-wide author visit with local author Tammi Sauer.  She was our first author to visit our new library, but definitely not the last!
We have also been developing our Guided Inquiry skills (NPS's research method), building some amazing creations, and reading, reading, reading.  Thank you for all of your support.  We are loving our Ike library program!  Be sure and follow all of our fun and learning on Instagram @ikelibrarynorman.
