DCMP News & Announcements

  • A beagle puppy stands on a small barrel in a field of flowers, smelling a buttercup.


    Many people think that Spring is the best time of year. Nature awakes, and there is a wonderful smell in the air.

    It is also a great time to study plants and animals, and to answer students' questions about nature. Students are our most precious natural resource, and DCMP helps provide learning nourishment through our free-loan accessible media.

    Don't miss our Spring titles and make these last few weeks of school a growing time.

  • Monet's painting 'water lilies' with the words April National Poetry Month.

    April is National Poetry Month

    National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, and to our complex poetic heritage.

    DCMP can help with media related to famous poets such as Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, and William Wordsworth. We also have poetry in ASL by deaf poet Peter Cook, a profile of legendary deaf literature professor Robert Panara, and many more!

  • A grocery shopper holds a bag of organic lettuce in the produce aisle.

    Earth Day (April 22)

    Eco=Kids: The Earth Needs Your Help discusses some of the biggest problems facing the environment today. Eco=Kids: Things You Can Do explains how to become “power police,” put a stop to the wasteful things people do every day, and promote the use of “green power.” Eco=Kids: How “Eco” Are You? outlines how to conduct an eco-investigation of homes, schools, and communities. These DCMP titles are described and captioned.

  • Blue Ribbon with words Stop Child Abuse. Illustration of stained glass window with adult and child holding hands.

    April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

    Each year, there are nearly 3 million reports of child abuse and neglect, and we know that child abuse cases are vastly underreported.
    Importantly, research establishes that the risk of violence to children with disabilities is routinely 3 to 4 times higher than that of non-disabled children. This month offers a powerful opportunity to highlight child abuse facts, explain the importance of reporting child abuse, encourage community involvement, and support abused children. DCMP has terrific resources for your use.
