Library Newsletter, 2-4-19
We have received many new books in the library this month. Some of the new titles include Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and A Map of Days (the fourth novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children) by Ransom Riggs. Stop by the library and check out one of our new books or I can recommend a great read! The library is open during school and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
There are some great technology tools and resources that the American Association of School Libraries has published. They are listed in the following link – https://docs.google.com/document/d/13i9zMI4jTmKkihMpwDXHrh0KWCtC_pskI28kPN2vJMo/edit. There is something for everyone including an interactive periodic table, a pen pal site, and many other valuable resources. There surely is something for everyone!
