Celebrate School Library Month Online
April is School Library Month, the American Association of School Librarians' celebration of school librarians and school libraries. Grier’s Library would normally mark the occasion with some extra contests, displays, prizes, and activities. This year, when we are distant from each other, Mrs. Woolfrey would like to remind students of the great Grier Library resources they can access online.
Here are just a few of Mrs. Woolfrey’s favorite online resources, all of which are free for Grier students and teachers!
NOTE: You’ll need Grier’s usernames and passwords to access some of these resources, so check your Grier email for “Remote Login” information, or email Mrs. Woolfrey if you have questions about access.
