Makerspace
DSCF5025The website Makerspace defines Makerspaces as “community centers with tools. Makerspaces combine manufacturing equipment, community, and education for the purposes of enabling community members to design, prototype and create manufactured works that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone.” Here at FIS, we are working towards creating this area adjacent to the library. Students will be able to use this space during a portion of their library time, enrichment classes, and other specially chosen times. The purpose of the Makerspace is to provide self-directed learning while introducing the students to a wide variety of tools and materials. The FIS Makerspace includes: Makey Makey, LittleBits, Arduino, paint, old materials to take apart, plastic tubs, PC computer, 1 ipad, sink with hot/cold water, how-to books, and other basic materials. I hope to expand my collection and am always in need of more supplies for the students.

Books From Heroes Campaign

Books from Heroes logo

the Books from Heroes program is sponsored by the Franklin Special School District (FSSD) library media centers and is designed to promote literacy by providing children with the comfort of a good book from a trusted community servant. While school personnel promote reading to students on a daily basis, sometimes people of influence outside of school can create the largest impact. We are excited to partner with the Franklin Fire and Police Departments in distributing the books to children. The books collected for this program are fully funded by donations collected during school book fairs. After screening the donated books for age-appropriate content, a school library media specialist sorts the books into two levels: elementary and middle. If you would like to know more about this program or provide donations for books, please contact FIS Library Media Specialist Dinah Wade at 615-790-4718.
