This week in our libraries students took part in the Hour of Code through Code.org. The librarians and digital learning specialists introduced students to the basics of coding using the resources provided on Code.org.  Students can continue their coding education by completing more coding challenges and enrolling in free courses offered on this resource. Each year students and teachers in 180 countries utilize these resources to learn more about coding and to grow their skills in this area. 
This week in our libraries students have been researching, learning to paraphrase, citing sources, creating in MakerSpaces, learning about online safety, and keyboarding. Book Fairs are also happening at Leesburg and Jefferson. Next week students will take part in a country wide coding challenge through the Hour of Code.  
This week students at the Eisenhower Library are researching apples.  The students are using the PebbleGo and Britannica Schools Databases to find facts and information about apples.  They are collecting notes, pictures, and citations.  The students are working on their copying and pasting skills with ImageQuest and typing skills using Microsoft Word and Google Docs in order to create final apple projects that reflects their learning.  Stop by and check them out!
This week join these students in the Dream Building Challenge at the MakerSpace in the Gateway Library - Stop by and start designing! 

MakerSpaces and Maker Clubs have been included into several of our libraries this year.  These libraries include Lakeview Middle School, Edgewood Middle School, Warsaw High School, Leesburg Elementary, and Gateway Education Center.  Students take part in maker challenges that include 3D printing, building, restoration, coding and programming, crafting, knitting, sewing, and much - much more.  Stop in, check them out, and start creating!

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.
