DAVIS CONNECT LIBRARY
At Davis Connect, we encourage students to be engaged in a path of lifelong learning! Our goal in library is to motivate students to pursue literature that inspires them in their educational learning as well as instills within them a love for reading. We seek to provide quality resources to all students that they may have access to a variety of learning tools. In our library, we strive to create an environment where all students feel welcome, involved, and motivated to learn!
The school library media centers of the Davis School District exist to provide informational resources for students and teachers, assist students in developing research skills, and provide recreational reading opportunities for students. Davis Connect Library is part of the Davis School District’s school library system and is governed by the school board. The library collection for Davis Connect is through Sora, a digital library used by the district.
Each class will be assigned a fixed time in the library media center for instruction and guidance on book checkout through Sora. First through sixth grade students receive 30 minutes of library media instruction per week and kindergarten students receive 15 minutes per week. Periodically online library times will be missed due to holidays and early dismissal. The students are always able to access both the Library Canvas site and Sora at any time as these are online resources the students can use.
While students are participating in our live online library lessons they are expected to follow the rules of our library:
[a] be respectful
[b] be kind
[c] be ready to learn
As an online school, we will be using the website and app called Sora. Students will use this resource for the checkout of books, just as they would in a brick-and-mortar school. Students can checkout a total of three materials at a time. Materials include eBooks, audio books, and read-a-longs. They can have these materials checked out for a maximum of 14 days with an option to renew at the end of those 14 days.
Book Battles is a fun and rewarding program and competition centered around reading for students in 3rd-6th grade at Davis Connect. Students will read from a list of 15 books from a list chosen by the district. They will receive a pin every time they finish each book. These book lists and further information about the competitions of Book Battles are available on the library Canvas page under the Book Battles icon.
