New Kid BY JERRY CRAFT!
Visit the Lumberjack Reading List page in August for our new selections! (Click on Lumber Jack above.)
Thanks to INFOhio, BookFlix is free for Ohio students!
One of the best things about BookFlix is our students (and their younger siblings) can easily access it from home. Every family will have a home library of nearly 300 books and access to rich educational content.
Elaine Fultz, Media Specialist
Hello Smith community!
I’m Elaine Fultz your Smith Library Media Specialist. I’ve been reading children’s and teen books nonstop since I was a kid because I studied literature and K-12 education at Wright State University and then received my Master of Library Science from The University of Pittsburgh where I concentrated in youth services. Reading, reading, reading all the time.
I don’t believe in shushing, and I do believe in promoting students’ ownership of their libraries, including Smith’s and the super conveniently located Wright Memorial Public Library.
It's easier than ever to access all of the important sections of your Smith Library. You can click on the links below to visit these great sites!
