What is Happening in the Library this Month?


The AnHS Library will be celebrating people we are thankful for during the month of November. Students can add an "I am thankful for..." note to our tree.

Cans for Fines!

Students are receiving overdue book notices in their 2nd period classes this week. Please encourage your favorite Titan to return or renew any overdue books they currently have. Textbook fines will be automatically deleted upon return. Any library fines will be waived with a can donation for the hungry. Each can counts towards $1 in library fines.

NYT Fifth Annual Student Review Contest

Contest Dates: Nov. 7, 2019 - Dec. 10, 2019

Do you have strong opinions about books, music, fashion, restaurants or TV shows? Are you a theater buff or a foodie? If so, you’re in luck. In this contest, we invite you to play critic and write an original review for our Fifth Annual Student Review Contest.

What can you choose? Anything that fits into a category of creative expression that The New York Times covers — from architecture to video games.

We do ask, however, that you pick something new to you. Part of the reason we created this contest is to encourage you to stretch your cultural imagination. So go see a local art, design or fashion show; explore a building; watch a movie or TV show or dance performance or play; listen to an album; read a book; play a game or eat in a restaurant that is novel and interesting to you.
