Manhattan Beach, CA I created a wiki for library resources at the beginning of the year, but that just wasn't doing all I wanted, so I changed gears in November and created a new website: mchslibrary.org. The site is also available in a mobile version for smart phones. Please visit now and check back as it develops further:http://mchslibrary.org Co-Presented "Teen Learning 2.0 Tutorial":
