Join us for Education & Fun on Library Live this Wednesday, Feb 10th

We are pleased to announce that our very own and talented Ms. Niki, Artistic Director, will be featured in the following school district event. See the instructions below on how to have your student join this free, educational, hands-on session.

From Ms. Carton, ASD Elementary K-6 Librarian:

"Hello Families & Teachers!

Last week we had a whopping 150 families/pods/classrooms/students tuned into Library LIVE and another 47 check out the recorded sessions and supplemental exploration materials! It has been incredibly rewarding as an educator to watch so many students engage with experts from around the world.

I am attaching the flyer for this week and asking that you pass it along to other teachers/families/communication sources, to bring more learners & classrooms into the fun!


If you are an ASD Virtual or homeschool parent, the process will remain the same for you. Instead of 10 minutes before, I will begin letting in guests 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time. The sign in process will be the same.

If attending with a class from school building, Teachers will simply project their computer onto classroom technology, so that the whole class can participate. During the session, teachers may input class responses and questions along the way. Looking to the last few weeks as an example, this was a very successful process.

If you are registered for the afternoon session for this week, there will be engagement by way of movement, led by the presenter. Please plan accordingly. There will be no activity where students will invade each other’s space.

Sessions are now listed to March, and there are some fabulous sessions still being finalized. Please check out the sessions listed here:

**Zoom--VFT SESSION SIGN IN**: To be able to change your zoom name to first name and school name, and get into the session, you need to do the following:
