Welcome to the Poultney Elementary School Library Makerspace! Our school library is located in the center of the school and is a resource for our students and faculty. Our goal is to try to integrate technology and information literacy along with inspiring a lifelong love of books and reading! Please check here often for library news, what’s new on the shelves, as well as for resources and activities to help with homework or projects!
Mrs. DeKalb, Librarian
It looks like winter has finally arrived! It’s great to see the snow, and all of the fun outside activities that the snow brings….like building snow people, sledding, skiing or snowboarding, skating, and having fun outdoors! When it’s too cold to get outside, or you are ready for a rest break…it’s great to have a great book to read, and we have plenty of wonderful selections in our Library!
In our picture book area, we have a selection of great winter-themed stories, as well as some of this year’s Red Clover Award nominees to choose from in addition to other favorites. In the fiction area, we have the latest Magic Tree House book, as well as some of this year’s Dorothy’s List nominees. Looking for a graphic novel, or mystery book? We have a special area in the Fiction section where you can find just the right one!
Our Maker Area continues to be busy! Students are enjoying making and creating things during Library classes, and during Fun Fridays! From exploring circuits, to coding and programming or making crafts the Library is an exciting place to be!
Please check back on the PES Library webpage to see pictures of our Maker Area in action, as well as check out the PES Library on Twitter.
Have a wonderful weekend!
