The elementary students in Mrs. Lewis's class were able to meet with a special guest during their library time today.  Dr. Hoffert stopped by to share the book, My Brother is a Runner, with the students.  Over the last month the students have been learning about perseverance and the story that Dr. Hoffert read focused on this theme.  The students learned about what it means to be a marathon runner and the skills and drive it takes. 
Yesterday at Edgewood Middle School in the new Learning Commons students got to take part in an electronics maker night.  The students were able to create light up cards and play with Chibitronics, snap circuits, Makey Makey, and Little Bits.  Each month new makerspace activities will be offered.  Stop by and check it out!
This week the first grade students have been reading, researching, and learning about snowflakes.  The Digital Learning Specialist, Mrs. Watters, had the students experiment with creating snowflakes in the lab as well as having them make their own snowflakes in the library's MakerSpace. 
Today students in 8th grade history at Edgewood Middle School worked on completing their final drafts of their annotated bibliographies for their National History Day projects.  Each student team collected their research from both primary and secondary print and electronic resources.  The students used the resources in the new Edgewood Library Learning Commons to complete this aspect of their research assignment. 
This week students used their imaginations to make puppet creations in the Makerspace at the Gateway Library.

Our Goal

The main goal of the Library Services program for Warsaw Community Schools is to support our district's mission of inspiring and equipping all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others. We help students achieve this mission by teaching them strong information literacy skills that enable our students to identify, evaluate, apply, and ethically use a wide variety of electronic and print information sources to meet their knowledge needs.

Our Curriculum

Our program's curriculum focuses on promoting a reading culture and project based learning that incorporates the Indiana State Standards as well as the American Association of School Librarians Standards for the 21st Century Learner. AASL Standards
