We are excited to get the year started in the Point Library! There is a lot that is new in the library this year.
And of course new students! We look forward to meeting all of you!
Earth Day 2013 is just a few days away. What can YOU do to step up and make a difference? Check out these resources at the library.
Earth Day Books from the library (you'll find them in the Special Collections up front) - This list contains both non-fiction (at the top of the list) and fiction (at the bottom).
Green Living Resources from Teen Health & Wellness (use the AEA username & password). What can you do to reduce your carbon footprint @ home? @ school?
Teachers, students and parents - from now until the end of the school year, you can try out TeachingBooks.net. TeachingBooks.net provides original, in-studio movies of authors and illustrators, and a wealth of multimedia resources on K–12 books to support reading and library activities for all grades and content areas. Students will find it useful for finding the next book they'd like to read. Teachers will find curricular materials & lesson plans as well as lots of information about authors and illustrators.
Enter your author, title or subject in the search box above. To access the free-trial, you will then need to enter your school email address AND the username (prairie) and password (pride). Let me know if you have questions.
As global citizens, we all need to stay up-to-date on current world issues, but it can be overwhelming given the 24-hour news cycle. Gale makes it easier with portals of high-quality and well-organized multimedia resources. Click on one of the links below to go to the updated portal. Remember that if you are off campus you will need the password. If you do not have a password label, see Mrs. Wilding or Mrs. Walter in the library.
