Salt Lake City School District Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Library Learning Center is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. A strong Library Learning Center program, administered by a certified Library Technology Teacher, positively impacts student achievement. The Library Technology Teacher is a certified teacher, instructional partner, information specialist and program coordinator.

 

Book Orders

If your child’s teacher does not do book orders in their class, you are welcome to order Scholastic books through me.  Please support your child’s teacher if they do book orders.  You can order through me online at www.scholastic.com/bookclubs​ and use the teacher code GXM29. I will submit orders on the following dates:  April 23 and May 14.  You will need to have orders submitted by then. Students can also pick up a flier in the library.

Library Lessons

I have included some cods to Nearpod lessons for library skills.  Students can complete these lessons to review topics we are working on in the library.  Use the Nearpod link on the right of this page, and enter the lesson code. When working on these lessons, students need to put their first and last names in the name box. I do not know students by their regular usernames. They will need to put their teacher’s name in the box for other.  Please email me with any questions.
