  • Blind Date with a Book 2018

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 2/13/2018

    To celebrate Valentine's Day, the library is playing matchmaker!  Going out on a blind date is a lot like opening up a new book; you never know what kind of experience you're going to have. 

    The event lasts all week.  Come and select your "date" from the display of specially wrapped books, check it out at the circulation desk, and then unwrap it.  Hopefully, it's love at first sight!

  • Escape Room in the library!

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 10/10/2017

    What:  Escape Room--a team activity where you look for clues, solve problems, and try to beat the clock. 

    When: After school (2:08) until 3:05 P.M. on Thursday, October 19.

    Who: You!  Anyone is qualified, and the team (there's only one) will benefit from the unique and different strengths of each individual. If interested, sign up in the library.  There is a limit of 10 students who may participate, but if the event is full, add your name to the waiting list. The last escape room had 4 students cancel last minute, and 4 students on the waiting list were invited. 

    Where:  The HS Library

    Why:  It's challenging, and it's fun!

    Sorry to post this so late, but at the very end of the school year last year, this group of students saved the planet from the Zombie Apocalypse.  What amazing teamwork!

  • Audiobooks and ebooks: Learn how to get popular books onto your devices!

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 5/5/2017

    Did you know that you could be listening to or reading some of the most popular YA titles right from your phone, tablet, or PC? Enjoying a book through Overdrive doesn't even require Wi-Fi or the use of your data.  Join us in the library Tuesday, May 9 after school for a demonstration and walk-through of our ebook and digital audiobook collection.  You will learn how to borrow ebooks and audiobooks right through the computer or your device.  If you have access to the internet on your device, come with the free app, Overdrive, already downloaded if you can (although this is not required).  Can't attend?  Stop into the library any day that Mrs. Horwat is here and she can give you 1:1 or small group help in getting started.

  • Write about it, or something

    Posted by Julie Horwat on 2/16/2017

    A loss for words is not a thing you

    should fear,

    but something you wish you should never know,

    in hopes of something to say,

    even though fear comes,

    all too often. 

    Though even in writing you get at a loss

    for words too often,

    so forget thinking of something to write,

    Just write what you feel,

    if you feel alone write about it.

    If you feel sad write about it.

    If you feel nothing write about it.

    Don't just sit there like you have

    nothing to say.

    Write something, anything, forget having nothing

    to say

    Just write what you feel,

    or what you see or hear around you.

    Write about the wind and the breeze,

    write about the birds and the bees,

    in a way there is always something to

    write about.
