The Lively Library
I will also be working on genrefying our fiction collection. Color coded labels will be placed on the spines of books signifying what genre they are: sports, action/adventure, realistic fiction, historical fiction, scary/suspense, fantasy and humor. Mysteries and Science Fiction are already separated out, so they will not get color coded. I hope this will help everyone find the types of books they're interested in.
I'll also be focusing on some of the needs that came up in the surveys I sent out last year. One suggestion was for me to share what lessons were being taught in the library. I've included that information in a document and linked it to this newsletter. If there are any projects you want me to help with, or topics you want reinforced in the library, please let me know!
Let's have a great school year!
Check out these readers!
This is a new display in the library. I'll be posting pictures of students who are reading as a way to encourage and motivate students to read.

Mark Twain Nominees 2015-2016
Here is a link to a website with book trailers, summaries and other information about this year's nominees for the Mark Twain Award. Students must read at least four of the titles in order to vote for their favorite. To encourage students to read these, I put up a chart on which students can place a star next to the titles they've read. Anyone who reads at least four can attend to the voting party in March. If you have read any titles, stop by the library to add your star to the chart. Let's see how many stars we can collect!
