Library Lingo

Simonsen Ninth Grade Center • Library Newsletter


The library staff will continue teaching ePortfolios to all freshmen classes. ePortfolios can cover a variety of topics and be used for future interviews and college applications. We will focus on using ePortfolios as an online resume and will include—

  • Your biography,
  • Classes taken,
  • Extra-curricular activities, including sports teams, and
  • Any work experience.

If you have questions about your ePortfolios outside of library class time, please contact Ms. Patty or Ms. Sarah.

Weekly Book Club Begins October 1st!

Please join us in the library during your lunch shift for a weekly book club! We will begin October 1st, and we’ll be reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
