Novel Hawk Newsletter
Dear Prairie Hawks
Happy Fall! I just wanted to take a few moments and tell everyone about what is happening in the library. Check out will remain through the website and hold system while we are in hybrid. Please have students look for books if you have a moment in class. We generally get them out within the day. Flipster is back! Students and staff can access all digital magazines through the library website. Some MacBooks will not open the magazines because of an issue with iBoss but all Chromebooks can access Flipster with no problems. We are working on resolving this issue.

New Books in the Library
The Book is Not Yet Rated by Peter Bognanni
Movies have always helped Ethan Ashby make sense of the world. So when developers swoop in and say the classic Green Street Cinema is going to be destroyed to make room for luxury condos, Ethan is ready for battle. And so a motley crew of cinema employees comes together to save the place they love.
Pet by Akwaeke Emezi
There are no monsters anymore, or so the children in Lucille are taught. Jam and her best friend, Redemption, have grown up with the lesson that the city is safe for everyone. But when Jam meets Pet, a creature who some might call monstrous but, in reality, is anything but, she must reconsider what she's been told. Pet has emerged from one of her mother's paintings to hunt a true monster--and the shadow of something grim lurks in Redemption's house. No one has encountered monsters in years, though, and Jam's quest to protect her best friend and uncover the truth is met with doubt and disbelief.
The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World by Amy Reed
When the lives of Billy and Lydia, two loners, are thrust together, Lydia’s cynicism is met with Billy’s sincere optimism, and both begin to question their own outlook on life. On top of that, weird happenings including an impossible tornado and an all-consuming fog are cropping up around them—maybe even because of them. And as the two grow closer and confront bigger truths about their pasts, they must also deal with such inconveniences as a narcissistic rock star, a war between unicorns and dragons, and eventually, of course, the apocalypse.
