Research Tip:

We all love Google, but there are other options. Stop in to the library and let me help you try out Ebscohost to find some great articles for your next research project. Remember, the library is open after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 4:00 during study session!

Spotlight Book

For this issue, I am shining the spotlight on Vicki Grove's Reaching Dustin. Check out the link below to read Scholastic's book summary. If you have a suggestion for the next issue's book spotlight, e-mail me at!

Poster Contest!

What: Book Posters designed by you!

I am looking for posters to hang on the library wall. Posters should feature your

favorite book or author. Give us a description of what you like and why you like it!

When: Book Posters can be turned in to Mrs. Odom or your English teacher anytime

before September 30th.

How: Be creative! Be bold! Be artistic! It's up to you! Just make sure you include

information to guide our book choices! The most creative posters will be

showcased on the library wall.
