LIBRARY NEWS

*Read during the summer - keep those reading muscles strong!
 
*SV Library e-Books:  
Even when our library is closed, you can still read our e-books from our online catalog. Students can log into our SV catalog with their ID number as the username and their 6 digit BD as the password. Arrow down next to "material type", and click on e-books.  If there are any additional username/password prompts to open an e-book from EBSCO, then you can use your Google username and password to sign in.

*Textbook Contract Cards
During "Summer Check-in", students receive a textbook contract card for reporting existing damage on school issued hardback textbooks. Please note that these cards are due back to the SV Library by Friday, August 16th. Students will be subject to damage fines if they did not record them on this card and turn it in.

*SV Library Wins Lowe's Grant of $2,300! 
The Sierra Vista JHS Library has received a $2,300 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for adding a cell phone charging station for students, laptop tables in their silent work area, and additional Makerspace kits. The 7th and 8th grade students will enjoy the opportunity to participate in even more fun, hands-on science activities during the SV Library’s Makerspace Tuesdays at lunch. Plus students will be encouraged to visit the library more often with the availability of the cell phone charging station, and tables in the silent work area. We are grateful to Lowe's for providing these items for our school library.
 
*Our SV Library Maker Space Tuesdays during lunch 2019-2020  
No need to sign up - just stop by at the beginning of lunch on Tuesdays. You may bring and eat your lunch in the library if you are doing the Maker Space activities. Robots, K'nex, alternate energy powered devices, electronic circuitry, and other kits are available.
 
*Below are photos from our recent Brown Bag Presentation
Presented by Canyon High School students in the Music Honor Society - Tri-M. Our students learned that some countries create musical instruments from trash/household items and were able to make their own creations as well.
