Public Library Partnership

In partnership with CCSD’s Department of Library Media, Local Public Library Librarians Mrs. Jennifer Wells and Mrs. Angie Bozeman recently visited 6th graders for a preview of resources, programs, and events available to them. The public library offers extensive Summer Learning. Be sure to check out www.cobbcat.org for all the awesomeness that’s just up the road. CCSD students have access to materials using their PASS account which consist of their student number and their four-digit birth month and date.  Mrs. Baker hopes to see you there over the summer, and don’t forget the Summer Reading Program Kick-off Party!
