Welcome to the Small Virtual Library!

Welcome to month two of the Small Virtual Library!

Each month I will have any library news as well as a list of books typically with a common theme, genre, or author. Important info about each Smore:

  • Each book cover will link to a video book trailer or book review so be sure to click on them!
  • I will also list where you can access each book under each cover.

Need something? Come by the library, contact me via email, (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore) or checkout my library Blend page! (All students should have a library tile their Blend Dashboard)

Can't find a book you're looking for? You can request books (use the button at the bottom of the Smore) to be added to Sora, our online library.

This month's virtual library celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month!

National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 - October 15

This month celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for the Latin American countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period. To find out more about Hispanic Heritage Month, go to

Our fiction books this week feature Hispanic American authors.

Biographies of Famous Hispanic Figures

This is just a small sample of the biographies available in the library!! Come by and check them out.
