April 28 - May 3, 2019 Screen-Free Week

Information
First published on 10 April 2019 Posted in Library

Screen-Free Week is an annual invitation to play, explore, and rediscover the joys of life beyond ad-supported screens. From April 28 to May 3, 2019, thousands of families, schools, and communities around the world will put down their entertainment screens for seven days of fun, connection, and discovery. Even though it’s about turning off screens, Screen-Free Week isn’t about going without – it’s about what you can get! An hour once dedicated to YouTube becomes an hour spent outside; ten minutes wiled away on social media turn into ten minutes spent doodling; a movie on a rainy afternoon is replaced by time spent reading, chatting, or playing pretend!  We celebrate Screen-Free Week by putting down our entertainment screens and do literally anything else! You might be surprised at what you find.  More information may be found at https://commercialfreechildhood.org/

MakerSpace Wall Debuts at CE&MS Library

Information
First published on 13 June 2017 Posted in Library

Picture of MakerSpace Wall at Chilton ES & MS LibraryMrs. Salzsieder, Chilton Elementary & Middle School Library Media Specialist, had a dream to bring a MakerSpace to the school where students could imagine, create, and design. She researched what other makerspaces in schools looked like. She scavenged rummage sales and thrift stores for puzzles, learning games, and building materials which students used when they were done checking out their library books. She had Monthly Make Days for her elementary classes. She added maker activities to monthly Family Reading & Technology Nights where families had the opportunity to make slime, create catapults, design and fly paper airplanes, create sand art, and more. Then she thought about adding a LEGO® wall, Magnetic Poetry, and LiteBrite board to the east wall of the library and sought funding and a construction team.
