Welcome to the NMS Library!

  Your Middle School Library is STILL a welcoming place.                                            The biggest difference is that you will visit our library virtually to do research instead.

Your NMS Library is open ANYTIME you need us - online!

Young Scholars, PLEASE, feel free to email me at nquinn@nyackschools.org  with ANY questions you have about schoolwork or research.  I will be checking my email regularly.  If I do not have the answer, I will locate someone, or something, to get you your answer.  Also,EMAIL me PHOTOS of you LISTENING to/  or READING anything you choose.   I will post them here on our Library page!!!!!

Have a personal greeting for you all here:  Missing you, Young Scholars 

RESOURCES

 World Book,  www.worldbookonline.com    is the first place that I always send you!

They have a level to suit each member of your family, &  the computer will read the articles aloud  to you, or, translate articles into innumerable languages with a click.  In fact, they have a version entirely in Spanish.

MY favorite dictionary is Merriam Websterhttps://learnersdictionary.com (OR try www.m-w.com. )  Keep your vocabulary sharpened with their online games & quizzes . . . I do!

Your project resources are in the grade blocks below, & we now have access to innumerable audio books as well.     Finally, there are research skills videos, set up to help you in whatever schoolwork you are working on.

As a timely resource, please take a look at this pathfinder to kick-off a conversation, ( & find a great read too! )  BLM - a Beginning
