    Welcome back to school Grizzlies!  I am so happy to start a new school year with you.  I also can't wait for you to see the new library layout.

    As your school librarian, I am here to help you find intersting, fun and exciting books to read; help you with your research and STEM projects and teach you all about the library and how it can help you. 

    To start your next reading/research adventure, click on "DESTINY" to open our school computer library catalog. From the Destiny page you can:

    • Search for books in our library from school or home;
    • Use our online Encyclopedia (see Mrs. Rakes for the password if needed);
    • Use our online Image Quest ("Millions of rights-cleared images from one trusted site.")
    • Use other resources for your research and reading needs.

    If you need to ask me a question, please do not hesitate to contact me at krakes@rcps.us.

    I hope everyone has a awesome reading-filled year!

    Mrs. Rakes
