Library Media Services

Bee a Reader in the BHLMC
 
The Bower Hill Library Media Center or BHLMC is open daily to all students and staff.  It is a bustling hive of activity and is the heart of the school.  Students check out books during library class weekly. 
 
Appreciation for Literature  
 
Students meet regularly with Miss Kunkle, our library media specialist, every week for 30 minutes to develop an appreciation for various literary genres, become familiar with noted authors and illustrators, research various topics of interest, access the electronic card catalog and many educational databases. Miss Kunkle also collaborates with staff for added enrichment and remediation.  She also co-teaches in the computer lab with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade teachers where the district technology curriculum is implemented.
