The Library Goes Virtual

Hello Kennedy Families!

Since we could not start off the year together in person, I thought it would be fun to take our library virtual.  Whether we are learning in the building together, or long distance, the virtual library will be here this year!  Some of the things I wanted to highlight in our virtual library: 
Starbooks Cafe

Inside Starbooks you can find a few things to explore

  • First Chapter Fridays - Every Friday I will release a new video of myself reading the first chapter of a book we have available for checkout in the library! 
  • Book Talk Tuesdays- Explore new books available in the library! 
  • Book Recommendations from Ms. Bashawaty 
  • Our online Book Checkout System.  Book checkout will be offered to ALL Kennedy Students (virtual and Face to Face).  More information will be provided on this in the coming weeks. 

Virtual Makerspace

  • Though we will not have the traditional makerspace experience we have had in the past, I still want to offer this in some way to our students.  To that end, I will be offering Take and Make STEAM kits to all students at Kennedy.  There will be 2 kits available each month.  More information about this can be found in the video below. 
  • Links to many sites full of STEAM activties

Technology Help

  • If you or your child are having issues with technology (chromebook issues, Google Classroom, Logins, etc). I am the person to contact!  Please don't hesitate to reach out at

I look forward to learning with your child this year!
