Happy 2014 in the Library

To celebrate lots of January holidays, the library is featuring many, many book displays.

Looking for inspiration? Check out the titles for International Creativity Month.

Want to research social justice? Browse the books for National S;avery & Human Trafficking Month or National Poverty in America Awareness Month.

Looking for something "different"? Check out the weird & wonderful Science Fiction display.

Please plan to bring your class to the library once or twice a month to find new books to read for pleasure and to research class topics.

Ways to Encourage Teens to Read!

Set an example. Let teens see you reading for pleasure.

Give teens an opportunity to choose their own books. Our school library is adding new books this semester. Check back frequently to see what’s NEW!

Build on teen's interests. Students are encouraged to suggest topics & book titles to add to the school library.

View pleasure reading as a value in itself. Almost anything teens read—sports magazines & comics—help build reading skills.

Make reading aloud a natural part of school life. Share an article you clipped from the paper, a poem, a letter, or a random page from an encyclopedia—without turning it into a lesson.
