Living Room Library

Your weekly virtual visit to the Small Library!

Week of 5/18/2020

Welcome to the Living Room Library! I am your living room librarian, Ms. Sylvia.

I'm excited about this week's Living Room Library featuring favorite books of the Small Middle School faculty and staff as well as the last week of our House Arrest book club!

Each week I will post:

  • a short video of a book I recommend with some other suggested books by that author or within the same genre
  • a video book trailer from one of the 2020 Lone Star books
  • a video book trailer from a 2020 Maverick graphic novel

Don't forget: Click on the book covers to view the book trailers for each title.

Need something? Contact me via email (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore) and join the library Blend page!

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