Shugart Library

Local businesses supporting the Shugart library

Owners of Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery and Lakewood Brewery said, "We LOVE that you are teaching your students to give back to the community, while creatively collaborating with each other! As two local businesses, we partnered with each other to create a product that goes towards funding local classroom projects. This is exactly the type of project that we were looking for.

Let's show these businesses how much we appreciate their support. Our first makerspace session is for third grade students. It will take place on November 9. We will be decorating lunch bags to donate to the Salvation Army's Feed the Homeless Program.

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.
