Hispanic Heritage Month: Sept 15 to Oct 15

Our Mighty Chiefs Media Center will have many books and resources on display to promote Hispanic & Latino Heritage Month.

In addition, the state of Florida is providing many more resources and is holding contests to celebrate.

The theme this year is “Celebrating Untold Stories and Contributions of Hispanic Americans in Florida”.

Details are available at their web site: http://floridahispanicheritage.com/

ALA Banned Book Week: Sept. 27 - Oct 3, 2020

The Mighty Chiefs Media Center will hold its 4th annual Banned Books Celebration where students will have the opportunity to read, research, and discuss why some books have been banned or challenged over the years. Look for the Banned Books display in the Media Center to research why one or more of these books are listed on the American Library Association’s list of Banned or Challenged Books. Once you find out why, fill out one of the slips of paper provided and tape it to the board next to the display. And don’t forget to cite your source!! This is very important.

Students who participate in this conversation will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. Please look out for details coming soon!

Support your freedom to read!!

These books will be on display in the media center and are part of the SLAM program, too.

Here are ways you can use the media center's resources 24/7!
