WDC library a busy place in the digital age!
It's first hour on Tuesday morning, and the WDC Middle/High School media center is "quietly" buzzing with activity.
There's Mr. Grendahl's ninth-grade Civics class compiling research on their term papers. Mrs. Grendahl's sixth-grade class enjoying their weekly visit to the library. Studyhall students coming and going. Lastly, Mrs. Berg's sixth-grade class arrives for their weekly visit too. Some students return books to Mrs. Davis, while others visit with Mrs. Niles about this year's Maud Hart Lovelace winners. There are students reading books, paging through magazines, scanning book shelves, working on papers, and asking Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Niles for a recommendation on a book.
The media center is a busy place!
Despite the digital world, the library is still a valuable learning environment! Following is a quote from award-winning author Neil Gaiman:
"I worry that here in the 21st century, people misunderstand what libraries are and the purpose of them. If you perceive a library as a shelf of books, it may seem antiquated or outdated in a world in which most. But not all, books in print exist digitally. But that is to miss the point fundamentally. Libraries are places that people go to for information and guidance and to feed their imaginations."
Don't forget! "Buy-One-Get-One-Free" Book Fair is coming up, May 13-16 at the elementary media center!
