Now that school has started again, don't forget the library serves students of all ages throughout the school year. Class tours can be scheduled, books for reports checked out, ideas for science fair projects found, there is a fine selection of Native American books on different tribes, and we do have encyclopedias that can be checked out for three weeks.
Teachers, there are materials to aid you as well; books to aid in teaching math, English, social studies and activity books for the lower grades; books to inspire and aid teachers to do their best; books on teaching students of all ages, including advanced students and students with various handicaps; and specific materials that have been requested in the past by teachers for their students. If you have a lesson plan that requires a certain book down the road, call the library and see if we have it. If not, we may be able to purchase it.
Books on homeschooling children (not text books or home school curriculum) are also available
Books can be checked out by teachers on 'program'. This means that the books can be used in the classroom for nine weeks in order to aid students in specific projects and reports. The limit of six is extended to however many books the teacher needs and can be responsible for.
Computers for research after school hours are available. Sign up at the front desk.
The library is open Thursday nights until 9:00 P.M. and on Saturdays from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. This gives students more time to utilize the collection for their educational needs.
Remember, students, it is always first come, first served. If you need a book on a specific topic, come early and check it out. If you do not have a library card, bring a parent or guardian to co-sign the form with you, and we will be happy to issue you one.
