A new school year

I can’t believe it’s already October!  This year has panned out to be fairly busy this school year!  Over the summer, the we got a new OPAC (check it out!), and I redesigned the library Web site.  Since the beginning of the school year, the library has been busy getting freshman orientated to the library, getting the word out to upperclassman and teachers about the school policy change for study hall passes (which effects library study hall passes), and cataloging all of our new books (among many other things).

In September, the library celebrated Banned Books Week with a week-long display and signs as well as a special book club meeting discussing The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky.  Our discussion got quite lively!  This month, book club will be meeting on Monday, October 25 to discuss After, by Amy Efaw.  I haven’t read this book myself, yet, however, I’ve heard some crazy things about it!  If you’d like to join us, read the book and come to our meeting ready to discuss!

In October, the library will be celebrating Teen Read Week October 18-22 (the week after homecoming).  Stay tuned for more information!

The composition classes are doing their big research papers early this year, right now!  The library has been busy will comp. students working hard and will be for about another week and a half.  If your study hall has been closed for most of this month, that’s why.  The comp. students will be finishing up their research time in the library at the beginning of Teen Read Week.  Social issue debates have been flying as students research!

I look forward to another great school year in the library!
