December 13, 2016.  

Kary Barth, Kapco representative extraordinaire, made a return to Long Island to host her popular book repair workshop for LISMA.  Kary has not changed a bit since she was last here; still bringing her great sense of humor along with her "first aid for books" techniques, the afternoon was a delight.

Family and Consumer Sciences Resources, by Patti Barrett, Library Media Specialist, Long Beach High School

The Family and Consumer Sciences department uses the library throughout the year to jumpstart their Units of Study. In the Culture and Foods class students are required to research origins and uses of various spices and ingredients and the history of pie. Their research allows them to appreciate the origins and uses of specific ingredients throughout the world. The resources are good starting points for lessons on various food topics such as; Spices, Pies, and Alternative Diets.
