Welcome to the Califon Library!
Students participate in Media on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Each week, the students learn about library sources and technology.
Kindergarten and first grade also participate in Maker Space after their Media class each week. During that time, we complete different STEAM challenges and activities, including coding, circuitry and animation!
