Yesterday was Missouri School Library Snapshot Day at Carver and I would like to say it was a huge success!
The students and staff use this library in a variety of ways and at different times, but clearly they use it. 415 students and staff members came to the library yesterday. Some dressed up as their favorite book characters, some simply visited alone or with their classes to check out materials.
Looking around 4th block, I saw 7th grade students using computers to work on power-point projects, do research on animals, and print out materials for exploration projects. I saw 8th graders selecting books and magazines for reading. 6th graders visited to share why they loved the library but also to work on their literature circles. Small groups of them gathered to read or discuss with their groups what they had read so far. Some selected new books to read.
In short the library was used for all the best purposes. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, dressed up as their favorite book character and used the library.
