WITH MRS. HOBSON
The library collection consists of over 8,000 titles including books, videos, DVDs, digital cameras and references. Students, parents, and teacher can access the collection through the link provided below (Whitebead Library Electronic Catalog). The library accommodates our entire (PK - 8th) student body and supports the Accelerated Reader program by identifying and labeling individual books with AR information. Catalog search capabilities allow users to access AR information on each book and search by AR criteria (i.e. reading level) as well as subject, title and author. This is a great tool to use for browsing and selection prior to coming to the library.
EBSCO and Funk & Wagnalls Databases: These databases, funded by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, are a great resource for student research. EBSCO includes Searchasaurus (young children), Kids Search (upper elementary) and Student Research Center (middle school and up). Encyclopedia, magazine, biography, dictionary, newspaper, report, image, and map databases are included. These databases are available through Digital Prairie.
Students and parents – I urge you to check out these sites. Designed especially for students, they are excellent tools for information (no need to Google and wonder what might come up!) Students can also access them through the school computers.
