Divergent Movie Premiere Party

The Teen Library Council (TLC) will be hosting a movie premiere party for Divergent on March 20 in the library from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. The movie comes out in theaters on March 21 and is based on the young adult dystopian novel by Veronica Roth. The party is open to all SHS students and staff. Pre-register to receive extra raffle tickets for prizes.

Library Closures

The library will be closed all day on March 17 and will close at 12:00 p.m. on March 26. If you have signed up for equipment on those days you will receive information on how and when to retrieve it.

Spring Book Fair

We will have a Scholastic Book Fair in the library from March 27 - April 9, 2014. There will be a wide variety of books available for purchase (middle school level, high school level, and adult level). Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted as forms of payment. All sales directly benefit the Southampton High School library.

If you are booked up and can't make it to the library (or just want to continue shopping) you will also be able to shop online and have the items delivered to the school. The online fair will run from March 27 - April 16, 2014 and will have a larger selection of books than the in-school fair. Family members can also purchase books online and have them shipped free of charge to their children at school.

I will also draw names for two giveaways during the book fair: teacher gift basket (one entry per book purchased) and student gift basket (one entry per book purchased).

Visit our homepage for more information on the in-school and online fairs.
