GDCS library goes high tech

Using the internet for research is on the rise, but that doesn't make libraries filled with books any less important. In fact, it may be more crucial than ever to teach children library skills according to Georgetown District Christian School TeacherLibrarian Ramona Vetro. GDCS is in the process of computerizing its 10 thousand books to stream line checkout processes and book inventories. The process requires numerous volunteer hours to get up and running. The Resource Mate computer system was purchased by the school with the help of specific donors. Vetro, who is serving her second year in the position has also made the library a little more cozy, encouraging readers to relax and read a while on oversized cushions. Enjoying the ambience are (back, from left) Jade Hoekstra, Grade 1; Victoria Stewart, Grade 2; Kayla Craig, Grade 4; Teacher-Librarian Ramona Vetro, Hannah VanRys, Grade 3, Mackenzie Crawford, Grade 3, Mark VanderLeest, Grade 4 and in front, James Keenleyside, Grade 2 and Brandon King, Grade 1.
