Class set of 25 copies
I know you all love going high-tech with interenet research and web databases, but sometimes it's not always possible or practical to have access to computer cart or lab. The World Alamanac is a great resource for social studies teachers in particular, with tons of facts right at your students' fingertips.
21st Century Learning can still happen with books if you plan a collaborative, student-centered lessson. Let them discover information for themselves and draw conclusions based on what they find. Check out a class set today @ your library!

We just got loads of new books in from part two of our first big book order for the year. I was especially excited about our new social studies books -- everything from ancient civilizations to the Bill of Rights, religions, and government. Our 900's (History) were in need of a serious overhaul, so the combination of weeding with all of our new books is making a huge difference!
These books should be cataloged, processed, and on the shelf by the end of next week. Check 'em out @ your library!

March is a short month for us due to Spring Break, so we are featuring short stories! We just got lots of new short story collections in with our part one of our first big order of the year. Short story collections are great because each story in the collection can usually be read in a single sitting. Check one out today @ your library!
