Happy New Year!! After a much needed winter break, we are back at school ready to start the new year off with positive energy, lots of classes in the library and a commitment to reading great books! We are beginning to book up with classes ready to tackle the second semester with research projects galore! Looking forward to watching the process of research unfold with students in all grades!
Ms. Carrick has challenged the library teachers and assistants in the district as well as our Students As Readers group to the 2015 Reading Challenge! The challenge asks people to read books in various categories such as: "Read an author with the same initials as you" or "Read a book by a new author" You have a year to do it! The challenge can be found here! And Look, our youngest members are already starting!!
Blog Book of the Week:
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail / Cheryl Strayed
Summary: Cheryl Strayed recounts the impact of her mother's death on her life at age twenty-two and chronicles her experiences after she made the impulsive decision to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert all the way into Washington State.
Ms. Carrick read this book over the vacation and described it as compelling, reckless and ultimately positive.
