Meet the Librarian:  Shelly Powe
Being the Intermediate Librarian is a great job!
The BEST part is that I get to work with every
single student in the building. I enjoy watching
the kids get excited when they get to move
up in their AR reading levels and striving to
get to the next level. Thanks for sharing
your children with me. Please feel free to
come by and check us out.


Intermediate Library

We have a Viewing Center where students can watch video
versions of popular children's books. We also have a
Listening Center where students can listen to an
audio recording of a book. We have a Puzzle Center
with fun and challenging hand held manipulatives, some
of which are electronic. The Computer Center is a favorite.
The students can play an educational video game or visit
fun websites. The Browsing Box has unique and entertaining
books that the students can thumb through; the Guinness Books,
lift-the flaps, pop-ups, and hidden picture books are always
fun. The Magazine Center accomodates students when
they have a chance to browse the children's magazines
we have available.
