Library & Technology Updates

Mar 4th, 2016

The Library's Biggest Event is Here!

Did you know that approximately ninety percent of the library's budget comes directly from the Scholastic Book Fair? Every day supplies such as the materials to create the bar coding system and protective plastic for popular books are purchased with the proceeds of the book fair. Anne Clubb was also able to add shorter, 'pre-school' sized sorting bins to the library along with new books for Annunciation's youngest learners.

Be on the look out for the Teacher Wish List for classroom books and also a Teacher's Pick section if you need some help picking out books for the readers in your house. The Scholastic Book Fair, "Peace, Love & Books" will be open Sunday, March 6 - Friday, March 11. Please see full details below.

New Google Chromebooks in the Library

Recently, the Middle School Student Council, led by Rosa G., made a request for upgrades to the technology in the school library. Students wanted to be able to research topics and complete writing assignments while in the library but reported that the 4 desktops available were slow and outdated. 

Thanks in part to generous donations from Annunciation's benefactors we were able to meet this need by providing the library with 10 new Google Chromebooks for the students.
