NEW STEAM SECTION!

We have set up a new collection in our library! Over in the non-fiction section you will find a set of shelves dedicated to STEAM, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. We pulled out books already in our collection that support these topics and the design process. We also received a generous grant from the PTA to start supplementing the collection. We are excited to share these resources with everyone!

Black History Month Focus: Coretta Scott King Book Awards

Teachers, we would like to highlight the Coretta Scott King Book Awards as a part of our month-long focus on Black History Month.

The Coretta Scott King Book Awards “are given annually to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.  The award commemorates the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and honors his wife, Mrs. Coretta Scott King, for her courage and determination to continue the work for peace and world brotherhood.” ~From the Coretta Scott King Book Awards page at The Round Table of the American Library Association

This year’s winner is March: Book Three, a first-hand account of the Civil Rights Movement through Representative John Lewis’ eyes. Using vivid language and dynamic visual storytelling, it details events from the Freedom Summer to the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
