 A big thank you goes out to The Oakwood Schools Foundation for a grant that will allow Harman library to add tablets and a collection of digital/audio books to our library in the very near future.  This new addition will give our students another option in enjoying quality literature.  Thank you again Oakwood Schools Foundation!

Another thank you goes out to Harman PTO who has made it possible for us to purchase more Playaways for the library! What a great addition for our students!

What's new in the Harman library?

Fifth grade students have been working for the past several weeks to create their own video book trailers. 

Congratulations to Sam Keyes, Evan Schenk and Edward Johnson.   Their trailers for the books, Wonder,  and Leviathan will be published on the InfOhio webpage in the Book Nook section for all schools in the state of Ohio to view. Nice work boys!
