Library News

Just a reminder that all assigned work in the library must be completed in order to obtain a good grade within each marking period.

We are working on non fiction works and author studies. Our worksheets will provide the necessary information gathered from these non fiction resources.

Currently, we are working the the reference book called the Almanac. We have discovered that it contains massive amounts of information. At the end of this learning segment we will be playing the "Almanac Game".

What a wonderful way to learn researching skills!

Supply List for the Library

Be prepared and always bring a sharpened pencil with an eraser to your scheduled library time. Don't forget to return your books from the previous week to exchange them for two "new" ones.


Try taking out one fiction book and one non fiction book for your reading pleasure! Practice makes perfect! Read!!
