What's New?

Carter High School Library


January will fly by in our library this year! We have the MLK holiday, and Mrs. Nelson's Book Fair is on its way. The book fair will be held in the Career Center, and will be open to students beginning Monday, January 25th until Friday, January 29th. However, teachers can enjoy snacks and goodies when they come by and preview the fair on Friday, January 22nd. As usual, I will have gift coupons for staff who volunteer to help at the fair with supervision or can bring their classes in to visit. Take a look at the links in this newsletter to see some of the books that will be available at the fair this year, and feel free to share them with your students!

Other January News

Be sure to sign up for library time as early as possible! Our space and staff may be usurped for various testing needs as we move toward the end of the year. Benchmarks, CAASSP, PSAT, AP and even ASVAB can impact our schedule. Email Miss Vaclavik or call her at ext. 28152 to get on the calendar, and be sure to let Mrs. Bryson know about any projects so that we can prepare research materials, guides and tips for your students.

Don't miss our STAR WARS book exhibit, either. We have quite an assortment of vintage comic books and novels inspired by the iconic movies. Soak up Star Wars lore and maybe you can find some clues to what will happen next in this popular saga! If you have artwork or memorabilia that you would like to contribute to our exhibit, let Ms. Bryson know.

Library Update

Need to save your work in a flash? The library is selling 8GB flash drives with a snazzy Carter Spirit Wristband design for just $10 while supplies last. See Mrs. Bryson to get yours today!

Have you tried out the district's new subscription database yet? Go to wwwproquestk12.com to give it a spin. The username is 28-26821 and the password is bigchalk. If you would like training for your students, contact Mrs. Bryson at extension 28147.

The library has received nine new computers "on loan" until the school or county comes up with a plan to restore the computers that were removed by the district. Luckily, they work beautifully! If you would like to see MORE computers, laptops, tablets, etc. in the library, please let your administrators know!

Remember, your students are welcome (one per pass) throughout the day, except during 4th period. (We need to eat, too!) The library is closed 4th period to students on passes.

We look forward to seeing you and your students at the library!
