News & Announcements
Battle of the Books is reading The Underneath by Kathi Appelt this week. While we had a break from Battle of the Books in FIT class, we are back and have read almost all of the books! Next week the assigned book is Schooled by Gordon Korman. As always, if the library is out of the copies of the book you need, you can read any of the books on the list. The full list of books with dates can be found here. In addition to our FIT class, Battle of the Books meets every Friday before school. Everyone welcome!
We have set the date for the final Battle of the Books competition. Mark Friday, April 28th on your calendar. We will be taking the whole team to Culbreth Middle School. Those who are not competing will be cheering their teammates on. We are starting to think about ordering shirts and getting all of the details set. If you have an idea for a t-shirt design, let the librarians know.
The Book Fair was a wonderful success! We sold nearly $4000 worth of books and other supplies. The profit from the fair will go straight into the library and our new Makerspace. Thank you to all of the volunteers, students, and the PTSA for helping to make the fair a success.
...Presidents' Day, Black History Month, the school book fair, rising 6th and 9th grade nights and so much more!
And coming in March...
...National Read Across America Day, Teen Tech Week, Daylight Savings, the First Day of Spring, and Spring Break.
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.
