Miscellaneous Information:

  • DONATIONS:  The library happily accepts donations of gently used books, appropriate for middle school students.  We also have a wish list of specific titles we would like to add to our collection. (Email me if you would like a copy of the wish list). Thank you in advance!

About the Librarian

Anne Dame Librarian Headshot

Anne Dame

anne.dame@ssd412.org

At the middle school library, my primary objective is to discover "the right book" for each student. I understand that some students may express disinterest in reading or books, but I firmly believe that it's merely a matter of finding the perfect match. Through dedicated efforts, I strive to connect every student with items that resonate with their interests, passions, and preferences. In the end, they may develop a love for reading and ultimately discover the joy and value in the written word.

Some favorites:

- Accountable by Slater

- Next New Syrian Girl by Shukairy

- Victory. Stand! by Barnes & Smith

- Cemetery Boys by Thomas

- We Still Belong by Day

This is also an important time to continue developing digital literacy skills. They will do so by evaluating content, utilizing resources effectively, and citing sources. These classes emphasize the importance of these skills, enabling students to navigate technology confidently and responsibly as they mature. 

If you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me through the email listed here.
