Book Bytes book trailer contest

It is almost time for the Book bytes contest. Students are encouraged to make a book trailer about a great book. The objective of the contest is to get others interested in reading the book. Students will be able to compete at the school and the district level. We are looking forward to many good entries this year. The 2017-2018 Bluebonnet books would be great choices for this contest. Check out the following trailer to learn more about the upcoming Bluebonnet book selections!

Dewey Decimal System

It really helps to memorize some of the Dewey numbers. Use this PowerPoint to help you. Knowing some Dewey numbers helps you to find books more quickly in the library.
