A Book Tasting

“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
~Francis Bacon

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.

Holiday Cheer in the LMC!

We were so lucky to have these amazingly talented orchestra students share some holiday music in the LMC last week.

Poke'mon Club!

Poke'mon Club!

We meet two Thursdays a month in the LMC until 4:15. Anything Poke'mon is welcome. Some students enjoy cards while others enjoy DS games or Poke'mon go. Hang out with other people who just love Poke'mon!

We started a fun new promotion during Teen Read Week...

Book Beads Craft

Late post from early November...

The Chapter Chicks book club made book beads this morning. We used a weeded book, cut out shapes, white glue, and paper clips to make these cute bookmarks.

Chapter Chicks is reading the book Boost by Kathryn Mackel. It is about a girl named Savvy whose family moves to a new state to start over. Savvy's family is going through a big transition and there are many different issues to discuss in our book club.

Bet you won't forget to return these!

People seem to to have a hard time remembering to return the headphones and device chargers they borrow from the library. I asked my Chapter Chicks book club to stay after school to embellish the items with some "flair" to make them extra special. People always remember to return them now!
