Norris Intermediate Library
The Library at Norris Intermediate School provides services for all staff and students, grades three through five. Fourth and Fifth Grade Students visit the library for 50 minutes once every six school days. Third Grade Grade Students visit the library for 25 minutes once every six school days. Students visit the library in their “Specials” rotation.
Research in the media centers is a K-12 focus. At this level, research activities are collaboratively planned by the classroom teachers and the media specialist. Students are also given instruction on use of the card catalog.
The ten Nebraska Golden Sower Award Nominees are read aloud to students in third grade. Students vote for their favorite book. The winner is then chosen by the children of Nebraska and announced in May. More information is available at the Nebraska Golden Sower Website at: www.goldensower.org. Students in grades four and five read the Golden Sowers independently.
The Library Media Center strives to maintain a collection that supports the curricular needs of the students and staff and also provides appropriate recreational reading opportunities. The Elementary Library Media Center has a very strong collection that contains over 12,000 books for students and staff.
Assistance is provided to staff as well as to students. The media staff assists teachers in locating appropriate materials, methods, and equipment to enhance learning opportunities in classes.
The media staff strives to provide a reading culture throughout the Norris District. We play an active role in a variety of literacy-related events on an annual basis, including Scholastic Book Fairs in the Fall and Spring, National Children’s Book Week and Read Across America, celebrating the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
