Reading ChallengeI've typically shied away from reading challenges because they feel a little constraining, but something about Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge has me hyped! I've printed a copy of the reading list and posted it to my door. If you're interested, click here to download an editable copy for yourself. The Read Harder Challenge page (linked above) is being updated regularly with book lists to give you an idea of what to read, or you can chat with your friendly neighborhood librarian about some options. :)
Magic is Afoot
More details to follow!
We are once again opening up the opportunity for students to form clubs. Click here to fill out the form to request confirmation of your club.
Please note - we reserve the right to deny the formation of a club or suspend the club for violation of library rules and regulations. Additionally, it is possible that we will need to close the library to club use for a number of reasons including, but not limited to:
- Use of the library for another class
- Library reset days
- Library-assistants only days
The snow days have come and gone, but the cold still calls you to find a good book to pair with your snuggly blanket at home. Why not find a good one and support the library at the same time!
The PTSA is hosting the Bedford Falls Book Fair in the library from Thursday, Dec. 13 through Wednesday, Dec. 19 (no weekend hours, sorry).
Cash and credit cards are accepted.
Harry Potter Week has been delayed due to the snow days!
Help us prepare for Harry Potter Week by donating the following items! Please check back early next week for additional items. We'll be updating this list to include items for potions...
Donation list will be updated with a sign-up genius. Check back soon. :)
Library Assistant Due Date
Students interested in becoming library assistants must complete the requisite steps by Wednesday, September 26 in order to be considered for the first semester.
Collaboration with Public Libraries
Recently, CHCCS announced our collaboration with Chapel Hill Public Library (CHPL) and Orange County Public Library (OCPL), and I couldn't be happier!
We'll have access to thousands of books, audiobooks, and other resources to make our learning experiences even richer. Some of the resources I'm most excited about include:
- NCLIVE: This is a database that contains many resources to help expand those already available via NCWise Owl.
- Audiobooks: Through the NC Digital Library, we'll be able to check out electronic audiobooks. You can listen online or through a simple app!
- Novelist: a resource that enables you to find new books and read-alikes.
- Tutor.com and Brainfuse: Get help with homework online!
