FHSD Celebrates National Library Week April 8-14

Join the Francis Howell School District (FHSD) as we celebrate National Library Week April 8-14, 2018. National Library Week is a time to recognize the contributions of our library media specialists and celebrate the many ways the Learning Commons (LC) leads our students through the transformative services, programs, and expertise it offers. Whether students want to learn how to code, see a best-selling author, or just thumb through some pages in the fiction aisle, LCs are where learning happens.


The LC, formerly called the library, isn’t just a place to borrow books or study — it is also a creative and engaging community center that enhances learning by providing access to technology, career development resources, and the skills to help people thrive in the digital age. The LC also provides
materials for students and teachers that encourage collaboration, inquiry, imagination, and creativity to deepen learning and develop 21st century skills. In the LC, library media specialists, assist students with research projects and class assignments, while providing an enjoyable place for reading and learning.

“The Learning Commons helps lead our school community by advocating for access to crucial services and lifelong learning,” said Library Media Specialist Andrea Head. “Libraries level the playing field for students who seek information and access to technologies to improve their quality of life.”

FHSD has strived to transform our libraries into 21st century learning centers, and to hire the best personnel for our Learning Commons, in order to better serve our students and their respective academic pursuits.

During this special recognition week, the District would like to give a special thanks to all of our Learning Commons staff for
helping foster literacy and engaging learners!
