Welcome to the Glenwood Elementary School Library Media Center, also known as The Hub!
BREAKING NEWS: Please visit the "Reading Adventures" page on the Library tab to read about the winner of the LitCon Bookmark Contest!
Please explore the resources on our Library pages. Updates are occurring weekly during COVID-19. You will find that the same resource may be sprinkled throughout the Library pages. I like sprinkles!
Dear Students, Families, and Staff,
As we enter into a time of extended learning, please visit the Glenwood Hub Online for a growing list of resources and services for your student. I've always had wonderful digital resources listed on every link on the Library tab. However, this list will continue to grow throughout this current extended learning experience. This school year, I introduced Biblionasium to 4th graders. This resource is a fun, reading-focused social network for kids ages 6-13. Biblionasium connects students in an encouraging community of friends, family and their educators. Biblionasium excites, engages and encourages a love of the written word (direct excerpts from Biblionasium). This subscription is integrated with Destiny Online Catalog. I would like to use this extended learning time to get the entire learning community onboard with this powerful resource. I am working on posting online tutorials to help all parents and students to access this resource. I am exploring the best platform to present Biblionasium without face to face instruction. In the meantime, please feel free to use the wonderful resources that are readily available. Of course, if you happen to know a 4th grader, please ask them about accessing Biblionasium. :-)
4th and 5th graders: Please note that the LitCon Book Mark contest has been extended until Friday, May 29, 2020! Please keep working on those beautiful book marks.
Check out the Digital Resources page for a growing list of resources! You will find the Glenwood Hub Virtual LIBRARY/READING Resources very helpful. Adventure awaits, so.....Keep on Reading! Finally, pleasee continue reading our library blog below.
The Glenwood Elementary School (GES) Library Media Center supports and enhances the school's curriculum by establishing a learning environment that facilitates access to resources and services that addresses the learning styles and needs of all members within the learning community. Our goal is to have literature and resources that foster equity and diversity.
GES library media center operates on a comprehensive 21st Century library media program with an open flexible schedule that encourages student and staff usage throughout the day. This flexible access model promotes equitable usage of physical and virtual library resources with collaboration among all teachers and staff to design, implement and evaluate inquiry and project-based lessons.
