Add your fear to the question wall

Add your response to the new question on the library’s question wall.  One request: please refrain from writing people’s names. And thank you to the person who wrote “fake birds” today.  I had no idea!

What are you afraid of?

green wall with question "What are you afraid of?" written in chalk, along with responses like college, clowns, high bridges, and fake birds.

VCU Library Shuttle on First Wednesdays

This year, the MW Library will offer a free shuttle (on our school’s activity bus) to VCU’s Cabell Library on the first Wednesday school day of the month, October through June.

The inaugural trip in October was a success, so if you’re interested in taking the shuttle to pick up or return books or DVD’s to Cabell Library, there are THREE forms you must complete and return to Ms. DeGroat BEFORE you can take the shuttle. These must be returned by no later than the Monday before the Wednesday shuttle you’d like to take:

  1. Repeating field trip form
  2. University borrowing form
  3. VCU Libraries registration form

You need to pick up the field trip form from Ms. DeGroat. You can download the other two from the VCU Libraries Guide in the Dragons Research group in Schoology. Just scroll to the bottom of the guide, print the two PDFs, fill them out, get parent signatures where needed, and return them to Ms. DeGroat.

Once you’ve submitted all three forms, you are set for the rest of the school year and should not need to fill out more paperwork.

Since time at VCU will be brief (we need to get there and back within the MLWGS student lunch period), it is essential that you know what you’re looking for at Cabell Library BEFORE we get there. See the “Finding Books in VCU’s Cabell Library” section of the VCU Library Resources page of this site to help you prepare.

Need community service? Transcribe!

Come join the fun at this year’s kickoff Transcribe-a-thon from 3:30 to 5pm on Wednesday, 9/25 in the MW Library. You’ll earn community service hours while transcribing historic documents for the Library of Virginia (LVA) so that those documents will be searchable by historians, scholars, genealogists, and other researchers.

Ms. Coleman from LVA will join us with exciting project updates. There will be free sweet treats and cool buttons.

Once you’ve learned the ropes, you can continue transcribing – and earning community service hours – at home or anywhere you can access the web.

To learn more or to sign up, see Ms. DeGroat in the library!
