We've jumped into a busy second semester for the Media Center, and we're loving it! The library has hosted many guest speakers & events recently, including a former Bayside student who spoke to health sciences students, a professional speaker who addressed student leaders, and the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council.
Our LMC staff has also enjoyed helping students from Ms. Baker's class with projects, using green screens and TouchCast Studio to create realistic news broadcasts. It's been a great addition to the other classes that use the LMC for fun projects like Speed Book Dating & Ms. Vedder's speedy health research project.
For Black History Month, our center display showcased books by African American authors, inspired by the #ownvoices movement on Twitter. We're looking forward to putting together more #ownvoices collections in the future, especially as we continue to add diverse authors and viewpoints to our library.
Finally, our displays are featuring plenty of rainbows this month. The weather is getting warmer and is often a bit dreary, so it's fun to be surrounded by bright colors and fresh flowers inside! Ms. Wilson's new diffuser has also been a hit, as it fills the front of the library with peppermint & grapefruit to keep us all awake & energetic.
