GREAT BOOKS FOR TWEENS!

The Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) recently released a list of great books for tweens. You may want to check it out! http://www.ala.org/alsc/tween-recommended-reads

Many of the books for tweens are made into movies and adults enjoy them as well.

YOU Could Win an Ipad Mini!

· The contest will run January 1-January 31, 2014.

· Teachers need to request items using their educator cards. Each time they request items, they will be entered to win an iPad Mini.

One middle school teacher and one high school teacher in MNPS will win an iPad Mini. We will draw the winners on Monday, Feb. 3 and notify the schools.

If you need help activiating your educator card, come see Mrs. Kelley in the library. You never know when you might win --- I couldn't have been more shocked when I won an ipad at the beginning of school in-service!

LITERARY LUNCHES RESUME

I will be finishing up with a few groups and starting new ones next week. If you have students who would like to be in one of these groups and they haven't filled out an application, they need to come get one in the library.
