The Book Break

O. Henry's At-Home Library Newsletter (Week of April 20th)

do you have o. henry library books at home?

As of now, students need to hold onto their O. Henry library books. If you don't remember what you have checked out, you should have received an email on Thursday, April 9th, in your student email account. If you still are unsure, feel free to message me in Blend or shoot me an email. Do not worry about the notice stating the books are overdue.
