Congratulations to the Library Media Specialists in our school district: Margi Wachowiak (high school), Laura Shucha (middle school), and Jamey Stanosz/Dana Franco (elementary schools). Their libraries were chosen as BadgerLink’s Library of the Month for December 2016!
According to Gail Murray, Content Management & Outreach Librarian for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, a Wisconsin library is highlighted each month for doing something special. “I heard there was a lot of support and excitement in the district surrounding BadgerLink,” said Murray.
According to the article, “De Forest Area School District libraries have been busy lately, from a newly redesigned website at the district level, which now includes greater access to library resources, to many exciting projects and initiatives in each library. The district’s library staff has been promoting BadgerLink and getting the word out, and the district’s BadgerLink usage has been increasing. The De Forest Area School District Libraries are being highlighted as this month’s BadgerLink Library of the Month!”
The article also features examples of how students are using BadgerLink, based on information submitted by the DASD Library Media Specialists.
