December News Learning Commons!

Good tidings we bring you to share in the celebration of the birth our Lord Jesus Christ!  As you wind down for the Advent season we hope that your first term has brought much joy and learning into your classroom this fall.  The Overdrive E Library will be open at all hours for your reading pleasure and we look forward to a new year with webinars for subscriptions, Missions Read-A-Thon and more starting in January. The physical commons will be closing over the holidays, so if you have last-minute loans to pick up December 18th is it:)  The Learning Commons will reopen in January when school starts on January 5, 2015.
