Monthly Newsletter

East Millbrook Media Center will send out a newsletter each month. It will be designed to describe events, new arrivals and technology tips that may be useful.

Book Tastings

The media center is hosting Book Tastings for our Language Arts classes. Students are using iPads to scan QR codes to watch book trailers on various book titles. Students fill out a menu to help them discover new books to check out. Books on the menu include: Crenshaw, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Stella by Starlight, Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer, Pax, The Fourteenth Goldfish, The Westing Game, The Book Thief, The House of the Scorpion, Once Upon a Marigold, Code Talker, Chasing Vermeer, Tangerine and The Thing about Jellyfish.
