Allamakee Community School District Library Program

The mission of the ACSD Library Program is to meet the information literacy and research needs of all diverse members of our school community while supporting the curriculum through teacher/student collaboration, technology, life-long learning skills, and desire for reading.

Waukon Middle School students in grades 6, 7, and 8 read the following books by Marsha Skrypuch: Stolen Girl, Making Bombs for Hitler, and War Below. We will be reading Winterkill with the whole middle school. We had the pleasure of a Zoom author visit with Marsha Skrypuch all the way from Canada. Enjoy our highlight video and pictures!

Speed Dating with Books


Students in English 11 enjoyed a class period in the library Speed Dating With Books. Tables were set up with selected books by genres. Students were given 5 minutes at each table to meet and explore their future book date. At the end of the period students choose the book that they had the most in common with and felt would be a great book to date.



Dot Day

International Dot Day is a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration centered around the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds.

The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing.
