The 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 within 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, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Snap Circuits, Legos, 1 Sphero, 18 Amazon Fire Tablets, 16 Dash robots, 4 Dot Robots, and art supplies. The Makerspace concept allows for students to participate in the American Association of School Librarian Standards through: Inquiry, Inclusion, Collaboration, Curation, Exploration, and Engagement. At Freedom Intermediate, we are always working to increase student engagement by making learning fun and meaningful!
Books From Heroes Campaign
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.
