Middle school librarians work to innovate spaces, inspire students

Dr. Harry Bull with West Middle School students and books
Like teachers, librarians in the Cherry Creek School District are always searching for innovative ways to engage their students and encourage them to visit the library for fun as well as learning. That’s why nearly all of the district’s middle school librarians took time out of their busy schedules in April to visit other libraries and collaborate with other librarians on creative ways to make libraries more inviting, intriguing and inspiring for their students.

Students discussing book Campus MS librarian Derek Phelan and Sky Vista MS librarian Kristen Donegan even wrote an article about their efforts, which was published in the Voice of Youth Advocates or VOYA Magazine, a bimonthly journal addressing librarians, educators and other professionals who work with young adults.

You can read their article here.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
