“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
Recently students at LMS got to "taste" our new shipment of books before they were available for check out. The LMC was transformed into what the students described as "a fancy restaurant". During the tasting the students were asked to preview books, write a brief reaction and rate how likely they would check the book out in the future. Students shared their ratings and reactions with their peers. Everyone learned about several books during the three rounds of previewing and sharing. Many books were placed on hold for reading over winter break.
