​The end of the year will be here before we know it. This year-end checklist will help you close down your library for the year so that you can have a smoother start in the fall.

Look for an email in May with a link and a reminder about the yearly data...


eBook collection website​

We now have access to 106 early literacy eBooks through a partnership between Douglas County Libraries, CLiC, and Unite for Literacy. These web-based eBooks also feature narration in several languages.

The easiest way to access...


Congratulations to Jon Georgitis (Centennial Middle), Regina Hoskins (Southern Hills Middle), and Kelli Chynoweth (Douglass Elementary) ​for being recognized by the CDE as Highly Effective School Librarians. We congratulate them on their achievements...


This year our monthly meetings will be in a choose-your-own adventure model. We will have 3-4 workshops every month led by teacher librarians and other experts. All workshop materials will be posted on the Library Workshops website (requires login).​
