November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

This image may be republished, BUFFALO SOLDIER By Tanya Landman Published by Walker Books ISBN 978 1 4063 1459 5 This cover is for Sunday Young Post book review to be published on March 13, 2016.

“What kind of a girl steals the clothes from a dead man’s back and runs off to join the army? A desperate one. That’s who. At the end of the American Civil War, Charley – a young African-American slave from the deep south – is ostensibly freed. But then her adopted mother is raped and lynched at the hands of a mob and Charley is left alone. In a terrifyingly lawless land, where the colour of a person’s skin can bring violent death, Charley disguises herself as a man and joins the army. Soon she’s being sent to the prairies to fight a whole new war against the ‘savage Indians’. Trapped in a world of injustice and inequality, it’s only when Charley is posted to Apache territory that she begins to learn what it is to be truly free”–Publishers website

9th Grade – Speed Dating with Books and Library Orientations

September 3, 2015 Leave a comment

The 9th grade students have visited the library twice in the past few days. The first time was to get acquainted with some great books, such as our new Sakura Medal titles and books recommended by the library staff. They sat in circles and spent one minute each with five books. Then they discussed the five books with the others in their circle. The second visit was a library orientation. The students worked in teams to discover information about both the physical and virtual library and then presented what they had learned to the rest of the class. Topics covered included the Online Databases, the Citation and Creative Commons Guide, the Destiny Library Catalog, the Sakura Medal Program, the fiction genres in the library, the Tech Help Desk, and rules around borrowing computer chargers, books, Kindles, iPads and other library materials.
