Welcome back to the library for the 2023-2024 school year.  This month, students will be reviewing library rules, organization and how to care for books.  Students will begin checking out library books very soon.  See Mission and Policies for more details.  
We are all so excited to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, which is September 15-October 15, 2023. We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success.  In Library class, students will explore books by many Hispanic American authors.  Please check out our choice board activities by clicking on the image below.
