Common Core Standards & Libraries

Whether you love them or hate them, the Common Core standards are here and impacting schools from grades K-12 across the nation. But these standards don’t just impact the students and the teachers. Librarians too, must adapt to these standards, and we at the Dewey Library are here to provide the resources you’ll need to do so. Below is a list of books and databases with useful information for the enterprising School Library Media Specialist student on handling the new Common Core standards.
