Media Center Minute
Minuteman HS Library Media Center
October 6, 2020
Dear Minuteman Community,
I hope things are going smoothly for you during this unprecedented school year. I am appreciative of the opportunities I have had so far to collaborate, teach, and learn with instructors and students, including in academics, 9th grade exploratory, Senior Projects/library check-ins, and the upcoming CTE independent reading sessions. Please reach out with any ideas or requests for library collaborations or support.
Thank you for reading this edition of the Media Center Minute.

Books on the Move Book Request Form
While the library media center is open for in-person visits, students' schedules may leave them with less time to stop in. To support access to library materials, the Minuteman High School library is offering book request and delivery services.
Students and staff are invited to complete the Books on the Move Book Request form. Book requests will be delivered to students when they are in school in their CTE shop. During 9th grade exploratory, books will be delivered to advisories. Over 48 book request forms have been completed, so far and more than 60 books delivered!

Pop-Up Exhibit: Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote
Come by the library to view the pop-up exhibit Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote. An online version of the exhibit is available at the National Archives website.
In addition to successfully procuring this exhibit, the library also received a book donation grant from the American Library Association featuring related books for young people: Around America to Win the Vote and The Women's Hour: Our Fight for the Right to Vote.
Sixty-four entries were received for the Summer Reading BINGO raffle. Nine students were randomly selected to receive a gift bag of book and Minuteman related goodies.
