Ready or not, the students are coming back to school tomorrow! Full of excitement and promise, it is bound to be a great year. My goal is for it to be a wonderful year inside the media center as well. How to do this? Have trending book titles, cutting edge technology, and a welcoming space where students feel at home.
I am in the middle of reading "Boy Nobody", a thriller about a teenage assassin, its full of mystery and intrigue, with the required teen angst and romance thrown in for good measure. Another mysterious book is "The Brides of Rollrock Island" a story of selkies and witches, told as a cautionary tale full of melancholy and regret, told in lyrical language and with a setting of times gone by.
These are just two of the new books I plan to share with my students; how about you?
