  • Research 101
    • Enhance the research skills of your students by having Library staff walk them through a live how-to session using academic resources. Useful for preparing students to write essays, prepare Works Cited lists, projects, Independent Studies, and more. Both online virtual collections and print material will be used.
  • Information Literacy
    •  C.R.A.A.P. - Currency, relevancy, authority, accuracy, and purpose. Fake news ... alternative facts. Digital and media literacy is critical for students to learn. This workshop is ideal for grades 9-12.
