Highlights of the Year

Book Club

The Maple Valley Public Teen Librarian, Emmalee Coontz, Buchtel 7&8 library staff and students enjoyed a collaborative lunch time book club meeting on Wednesdays during lunch in the library. The members of the book club completed three books this school year, The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan, The Maze Runner by James Dashner, and Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Our book club averaged around 15 to 20 students weekly.

Bagels & Books

Buchtel’s second annual Bagels and Books event was a huge success. Members of the staff were invited to the LRC on April 16th to be the first to preview the new titles for the 2015 school year, including our new eBooks, and enjoy a special bagel treat. Staff was able to put new titles on reserve and were first to check them out. Students were invited to the new book preview the following day and were also able to check out the new titles and eBooks. The preview is very helpful for collection development, teacher collaboration, and fostering a love for reading.
