[Library Media] Search Stations in Libraries

I have two stations in the library that students can use to look up books.
I also spend a couple of lessons each year with most grades teaching them
this skill. Doesn't always work though.

I am in a K-8 library and my students know that if they come in on their
own and I am with a class and my aide is not at work that day, they need to
come in at another time.
