Amber is the Tech Librarian in the Power Library where kids can check out books and participate in educational activities for Power Hour. Club members learn high-yield activities that compliment the classroom with science, math, technology and reading.
The Power Library is open from 3pm to 6pm on Monday through Thursday. During no school days, the club is open from 10am to 3pm.
