Libray and FAB LAB

At Brady, the Library and FAB LAB serve as a hub for learning and exploration. Room 129 is a space where students can access a wide range of resources, including books, e-books, audiobooks, and digital databases. The space is staffed by a skilled librarian who is knowledgeable about the school's curriculum and can help students find resources that support their learning goals. In addition to providing access to resources, the library also serves as a space for students to work collaboratively, engage in research, and develop critical thinking skills.

In addition to the traditional library resources, Brady has invested in a “skills library” (aka FAB LAB). The FAB LAB parts of the library space are where students can access tools and resources to develop practical skills that are not typically taught in a traditional classroom setting. The skills library includes things like an Epilog Laser Mini Helix, Epson Sublimation Printer, Cricut Maker, Silhouette Cameo 3, and many more.   These tools allow learners to build their knowledge and use of coding tools  and other hands-on project learning materials. The skills library is an important component at Brady because it provides students with the opportunity to develop practical skills that are essential for success in the modern workforce and in universities and colleges.

What to expect from libraries in the 21st century

What does a Digital Teacher-Librarian do?

"Today's school librarian works with both students and teachers to facilitate access to information in a wide variety of formats, instruct students and teachers how to acquire, evaluate and use information and the technology needed in this process, and introduces children and young adults to literature and other resources to broaden their horizons. As a collaborator, change agent, and leader, the school librarian develops, promotes and implements a program that will help prepare students to be effective users of ideas and information, a lifelong skill."
"Learning about the Job", American Library Association, September 27, 2006. (Accessed April 29, 2024)

Co-Teaching and Collaboration

Brady is a small community and we work together to enhance the learner experience at Brady.  

Some teachers may want to escape the confines of their rooms and hold classes in the library where the DTL can co-teach and collaborate. 

Other teachers may have the DTL bring part of the skills library into their classrooms where they can be worked with to expand the course work.   If you want to collaborate or need to reserve the space or a tool, eMail [email protected] or text (720)583-5179.

Databases and eBooks

Jefferson County Public Library (aka JCPL)  has more than 200 databases available to all patrons – all you need is a free library card. Brady’s DTL can issue Jeffco library cards good for online resources. For full access to all JCPL resources, you will need to visit a Jeffco library or talk with a JCPL librarian when they are in our building. Our e-book collection is growing every year. These books can be accessed 24/7 on campus and off and can be used by multiple users at once. You will need a login and password to access them. Use the widget below to search for eBooks.


Teachers can use the laminator if they have been trained on how to use it.  Otherwise, please contact [email protected] or text (720)583-5170 or drop your items by Room 129 and it will be done as soon as possible.  We can laminate up to a 24-inch width. Be sure the lamination has your name on it.
