    LIBRARY SCAVENGER HUNTS
    The Library Scavenger Hunt is a group learning activity that focuses on information literacy and library orientation proficiency while introducing and reinforcing information retrieval skills using our cataloging system (Destiny), the Dewey Decimal system, and the internet. Hunts can be customized, through library and faculty collaboration, to complement relevant classroom lesson plans or activities.
     
     
    DONATIONS
    The library gladly accepts donations of age-appropriate books and magazines. Donations may be added to the library collection or shared with classroom teachers. We also gladly take abandoned houseplants, out of style holiday decorations, and lonely aquarium fish. The fish will go to the aquarium at Bullock School.
