Battle of the Books will be starting Friday, October 7th in the morning for anyone who does not have Battle of the Books for their FIT class. If you want to get ahead on your reading for it, you can find the list here. We will be starting with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Teen Read Week is October 9 to 15. The theme this year is "Read for the Fun of It!" something we always encourage in the Phillips Library! The Chapel Hill Public Library will be holding a a mini-reading challenge. Any teen who finishes a book during that week and writes a review of it, and shares that review with a librarian there will win a free book! I will be tweeting about all the reading done in this library #TRW16.
Fall weather, the end of many of our sport seasons, political debates, and Halloween.
Our Library Mission:
To empower students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and effective navigators of information and technology. This is supported by:
The library is open Monday - Friday during school hours. Students are welcome to come check out books, use our computers, or create and collaborate when the library is open. Students can come to the library any time during the day with a signed pass from a staff member.
Students may check out up to 10 items at a time. Check out is for 3 weeks, but students may renew items unless there is a hold. Students can also request a hold for a book with the library staff. Although there are no overdue fees, students will be restricted to check out more materials if they have overdue items. Students are asked to see their librarian about lost / damaged books. Refunds are not honored after the school year is over, or if the book has already been replaced.
