Library - Learn Forever
 
When everyone is a learner, there is no end to success 
 
Welcome to the Janitell Learning Center! Our mission is to provide resources that promote collaboration and critical thinking in order to push learners of all ages to excel in academics, interests, and self-reflection. We believe anything is possible with the right approach, and that the right approach can only be found through effective collaboration. Working together, there is nothing we can not accomplish.

We Want Your Videos!
What inspires you to do what you do best? Have you made or seen a video that would inspire others to be positively passionate? Send videos or links to lovatod@wsd3.org for a chance to share it here.  We'll start the year with a classic YouTube hero, Kid President.

Battle of the Books (BOB)
August starts our third year of BOB at the junior high level in District 3 and we are excited to build on last year's experience. In the past we have both won and lost, but it is not really about winning. The perseverance kids have to have, and the relationships they form are simply amazing. We are proud of each participant and hope to see many more faces in 2016 - 2017.
 
Why not spend 20 minutes a day working on the list? Stories draw us in because they both help us escape from and understand our own lives. Don't miss out on this year's adventures. Listen for announcements for start dates and come by the library for a list (or print/view it below).
