We are exploring the use of makerspaces and centers kits in school libraries. When you have a chance, take a look at the libguide included in this section to see if there is anything you would recommend adding, changing, or deleting from the list. At this point, we are just exploring opportunities and looking at pricing from vendors. Thank you!

Great Prezi on how to create blackout poetry. Geared toward middle and high school students, but will give you a good idea on how to create these items!
Examples of different ways to do black out poetry:
Please remember to send me pictures of the goings on in your libraries! We have featured 25 elementary schools and 9 secondary schools so far this year on social media! We still have 38 elementary and 11 secondary schools to go. I would love to be able to share at least one great thing going on in each of our school libraries this year. If you have an event, display, or lesson coming up that you would like to share but need help photographing, let us know!
Why should you share the great things you do? This is a wonderful advocacy tool for us. We have 225 followers on Facebook and 278 followers on Twitter. These followers include school board members, principals, community members, parents, fellow teachers, and much more! We want them to know the important role you play each and every day in the lives of your students. Thank you! Courtney
