Library Class & Book Business Schedule
Third grade library classes have officially begun, and we in the learning commons are all very excited about having our students in the space on a more regular basis. Book business times have shifted and our faculty have proven extremely helpful in updating their classroom's scheduled book business time slots.
Playaway audio books remain some of our most popularly circulated item. As a result we have purchased more for the collection and amended our circulation policies. Playaway audiobooks will now be available for 1 week to provide better access for all our students here at Wentworth. There will still be no holds or renewals available on these items.
Book Business : Holidays & Inclement weather
At this point we will not be able to reschedule book business times due to inclement weather and holidays. We are able to help some students in the morning before announcements, however, this is dependent on learning commons staff not being pulled for morning duties. If the learning commons staff is away on duty there will be a sign at the circulation desk communicating that students and staff should return when a librarian is present.
We have continued to add to the professional collection. In addition to the leveled books we are now adding some playaway copies to the collection to accompany the leveled titles. This will hopefully allow a broader audience and some more versatility in small book groups. Our newest additions are playaway copies of Gordan Korman's Ungifted and Jerry Craft's New Kid.
