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​ 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.


Student Reading

While we are dismissed from school, students have access to several resources for them to continue reading.  Students can log in to SORA using their regular school username and password.  Epic Books is also available to students.  They can use my class code of LHP4045 to access the site.  For  students who want to watch videos of celebrities reading picture books, they can use Storyline Online.  Links to all these sites are under the resource section to the right of this page.  There are also links to other great learning resources as well.



The Utah Jazz is having a reading challenge this month.  Click the link for more information.

Students will need their email addresses to access Microsoft Teams. See the example below to know student email addresses.

Passwords will be the student’s regular password


Library Lessons

I have included some links to Nearpod lessons for library skills.  Students can complete these lessons to review topics we are working on in the library.  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. The link should take you straight into the lesson.  Students will just need to put in their name and teacher. If the link does not work, students can go to Nearpod and put in the code I have given. Codes are good for 30 days.  Please email me with any questions.
