There are four final winners of the Bookmark Contest!
The year is almost over! I meant to get the bookmarks that were submitted earlier in the year assessed, but sometimes things get busy. Thank you to all those who participated, there were so many good ones to choose from, but I had to narrow it down.
1st place goes to Maia A., 2nd place is Hanna M., 3rd place goes to Pyal D., and 4th place goes to Erin W. !
1st 2nd 3rd 4th
Congratulations to the finalists!!! I will be making copies of the new bookmarks and they will be available in the library next week!
There are several new authors to check out in the Middle School Library, such Canadian author Rachel Devenish Ford and her World Whisperer series. In this poignant, yet hopeful tale, orphaned siblings find their purpose and true identity while trying to keep evil from taking over the magical kingdom of Maween.
The Mark of the Raven book by Morgan L. Busse is another young adult book that will not disappoint. Every Great House has its own special gift, except the Ravenwood House, or so the other Great Houses are led to believe…will the Great Houses come together and use their gifts to protect their kingdom before it is too late?
Also, famous Canadian author Eric Walter’s book 90 Days of Different is on the shelf. This story revolves around a young lady whose friend challenges her to try 90 different things after her boyfriend dumps her for being “boring”.
Favourite authors are back, like the Bravelands series by Erin Hunter, My Life in Pink and Green series books #2 and #3 by Lisa Greenwald, and the new Menagerie series by Tui T. Sutherland and her sister Kari Sutherland. The latest Priscilla Shirer books Prince Warriors books #3 and #4 are back as well.
There are so many books to talk about, but come to the library to see all the variety, and pick up a 40 Book Challenge form while you are at it! See you at the Library!
Happy New Year! What better time of year (than at the beginning) to challenge yourself by reading books of different genres?! For every 10 books you read, you get a prize. You must take books out from MEI Middle School Library in order to qualify. Please see Mrs. Burritt to pick up your form so you can keep track of your reading.
The week before Christmas Break, Library Fines will be 1/2 off! Please check your library account, and see if you owe anything.
Also, there are unclaimed yearbooks (from last year) in the Library due to fines not being paid. This is a good time to get your yearbook. Merry Christmas!
