Happy first day of school!
Lots of new and not-so-new awesome books are waiting for you in our lovely library. Here are links to sites you should become acquainted with this year (if you haven’t done so already) so you can find books you’ll love:
1- Lion: Search for books and other library resources (including online databases) in the Denver Public Schools library system.
2- DPL website: Search for books and other library resources (including online databases) in the Denver Public Library system. (The NoveList K-8 Plus database is fantastic! [You must have a library card.] Go to the DPL homepage; click on research; enter NoveList K-8 Plus in the search bar; click on search; explore the site.)
3- Follett Shelf: Search for ebooks and audiobooks in our school’s digital collection.
4- AR Finder: Find information about books with Accelerated Reader quizzes.
