Monroe One BOCES SLS has purchased additional audiobooks and ebooks for simultaneous use. These titles will be available for one year, and potentially more. This collection holds over 600 elementary titles, and over 170 titles at the secondary level.
Simultaneous use (AKA "Always Available") ebooks/audiobooks are those that can be borrowed by more than one person at a time, so if you want your whole class to read the same book at the same time, this is a perfect solution.
Welcome back, everyone! Hopefully these first days of the new school year have been kind to you.
We wish a warm welcome to our newest members of our school Library Community! They are:
Briannyn Reyes, East Irondequoit Middle School
Andrea Snow, East Rochester Elementary
Elizabeth Kois, Penfield High School
Kaitlin Schneider, Fyle Elementary (Rush Henrietta)
Meredith Janmey, Klem Road North Elementary (Webster)
Bethany Miller, Schlegel Road Elementary (Webster)
SLS Mini-Grants are back this year. These competitive grants offer an opportunity for school librarians in Monroe One BOCES SLS member schools to apply for up to $1,200 to attend conferences or professional development, carry out an innovative project, or engage in a focused collection development project that benefits the region. More information and application materials can be found on our LibGuide at https://libguides.monroe.edu/SLS/MiniGrants .
