Jennifer LaGarde, also known as LibraryGirl, has created this great infographic that highlights some tips for spotting fake news.

    School Librarians and Media Specialists have been teaching these four concepts to students for years, but recent media coverage has highlighted the struggles that many people face when evaluating online information

    Our challenge is to make sure today's students have the skills to be informed online information seekers!

  • April = National Poetry Month!
    Page: http://feedly.com/i/latest Image: https://nerdybookclub.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/poetry-rocks.jpg
    Spring is in the air, and so is poetry!  Forget about all those poems you "had to read" in class, and explore poetry in your own way.  Poetry can be funny, sad, exciting, romantic, and everything in between.  Here are a few poetry resources to check out:
    Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 21) - carry a poem with you to share with people you meet

    ...and on May 26, many of our HS students will have the pleasure to hear Jacqueline Woodson (Young People's Poet Laureate) speak.  As a part of the KDL Reads program, she will also be speaking to the public that same evening at Comstock Park HS - check out the details here

  • We LOVE Reading Month! #wpswolvesread
    March is "Reading Month", which makes it a favorite in our calendars!  Though we love to read all the time, this special month allows opportunities to promote reading in a variety of ways.  Reading doesn't mean just books, it might be magazines or newspapers, or maybe listening to an audio book.  The format isn't what matters to teachers and/or librarians - what we love to see is that our students are learning to love reading itself and that they're learning to find what type of reading inspires them.

    Sharing what we are reading is just one way to show just how important books are to us.  WPS is encouraging students, families, and staff to share their reading on social media by using the hashtag - #wpswolvesread.  Throw your reading out there on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagra Let's promote our love of reading all them time and shout it to the world!!

    Happy Reading!
