3 of the 4 Cambridge Libraries branches are located in core area communities
What do we offer?
We are NOT classroom teachers
We are NOT Teacher-Librarians
We are NOT replacing the school library
Library Visit Planners are sent to every school principal in Cambridge to distribute to their teaching staff. Planners contain one sheet flyer that briefly highlights classroom visit opportunities and a flyer for the Young Readers…Young Riders program that offers a free transit ride to the library.
Teachers that book a visit are automatically added to our teacher email list. This list is used to send out information about the library (New databases, Author Visits, Poetry Events, Let’s Read program etc…)
Remind teachers that visit with their class that they can come again for a different unit of study.
Teachers will need flexibility when booking regular library visits. Chose times that work well with both the library and the class schedules. Classes that walk to the library are at the mercy of the weather; snow, rain and extreme cold will affect their ability to attend.
Students who attend Project Prep visits on a regular basis develop a strong sense of library ownership.
Project Prep Library Visit = 60 Minutes
(Basic OPAC & Database Training) = 20 min

Can you dance an exclamation point?
Can you dance a couple of commas?
And bring it to a finish with a period?
Can you dance like the wind is pushing you?
Can you dance like you are pushing the wind?
Can you dance with slow wooden heels and then change to bright and singing silver heels?
Such nice feet, such good feet.
If you were me and I were you
For just a day or maybe two
Then maybe you and maybe me
Would see the me that you were too
Because…the you I see
You try to be never ever
Speaks to me
See…If you knew the me I am
Or I could know the you you be
I think we would eventually
Discover we like broccoli!
Yeah…we could form the broccoli bunch
Invite each other out to lunch
Share our little broccoli trees
Cover them with melted cheese
But…you pass me by without a smile
as if I were a crocodile then look the other way in case
You see the me that’s in my face.
If you could wear my sneakers
(You might plug your nose)
And if I could wear your shoes
(Even if they crunch my toes)
Maybe we could see the us
We never got to meet
The you and me
That might have found
More broccoli to eat
We don’t care,
We make messes
We strip forests
Bare of trees,
We dump garbage
In the seas.
We are Plooters,
Where creatures thrive,
Soon there’s little
When we’re around,
We spew poisons
In the air,
We are Plooters,
We don’t care.
Running through a field seeking refuge,
A road lined with bullet shells instead of pebbles,
An empty wheelbarrow stained red,
A pillar of smoke uniting sky and ground,
A slogan cried from the background,
A hug of protection from my mama.
Una lagrima fluyendo de mi ojo,
Corriendo a campo traviesa buscando refugio,
Un camino marcado po bals servidas en vez de guijarros,
Una carretilla vacia manchada de rojo,
Una pilar de humo uniendo cielo y tierra,
Una consigna gritada desde el fondo,
Un abrazo protector de mi mama.
Just don’t, I guess.
I don’t speak it.
Hey, let’s listen to you for a change.
Say some foreign words.
Your family came from
somewhere else. Sometime.
So was I.
You’re Korean, aren’t you?
Why don’t you speak Korean?
Say something Korean.
C’mon. Say something.
Say some other stuff.
Sounds funny. Sounds strange.
Listen to me?
But I’m American can’t you see?
But I was born here.
