WHEN HAMLIN SCHOOL AND SAN FRANCISCO PUBLIC LIBRARY JOIN FORCES, STUDENTS WIN!
For two years, neighborhood librarians at San Francisco Public Library: Golden Gate Branch on Green Street have teamed up with Hamlin to train students on using the San Francisco Public library’s children e- books for research.
On November 7th, Ms. Garcia’s and Ms. Silva’s third graders learned how to how to download digital books on their classroom iPads. Ms. Celeste Heike, children’s librarian worked in collaboration with Ms. Cardone and Ms. Davis to ensure all students in third grade could access the electronic collection. Hamlin students and teachers now have access to additional reference resource materials when searching for books that may be out of print or difficult to locate in our collection.
As a result of this partnership, students have access to scores of digital books to assist with research for major projects.
