Bee a Reader in the BHLMC
 
The Bower Hill Library Media Center (BHLMC) is typically open daily to all students and staff, and is a bustling hive of activity and the heart of the school. This year, students can put books on hold for check out via the online catalog. Books will be delivered to classrooms by the library staff. 
 
Appreciation for Literature  
 
This year, students will meet with Mrs. Keffel, 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, utilize the electronic card catalog, and examine educational databases. Mrs. Keffel will visit each homeroom for library. Weekly lessons will include a read aloud story, an information literacy objective, and games and activities that focus on the skill or topic of that week. Mrs. Keffel will also collaborate with teacher and staff for additional student enrichment and remediation.
