Book Club

Do you love to read? Book Club will be meeting Wednesday, November 28th (room to be announced). We will be discussing After Tupac and D Foster by Jacqueline Woodson, and members will receive a copy of our next book, November Blues, by Sharon Draper. Come by the library after school to meet up!

New Catalog Feature

Our online catalog now includes Google Preview in each book record. If you haven’t checked out Google Preview, it’s worth a look. Students can read portions of a book, read reviews others have written and write their own, and rate a book on a 5-star system. Google Preview will also show students related books, biographic information about the author, and links from Google Scholar.
