The My Future Library Red Cedar Book Club kicked off this week on November 23st, 2012. Participating students meet each week in the library on Wednesday from 12:15-1:00 to discuss the Red Cedar books. Students have six months to read the various selections as voting will take place in April, 2013. So far, I have observed that the nonfiction book 100% Pure Fake by Lyn Thomas has been very popular and the fiction book The Giant Slayer by Iain Lawrence has been flying off the display shelf!
Interested in joining the Red Cedar Book Club? It is NEVER too late. Check out our club next Wednesday at 12:15 in the library!

Exciting news My Future Library bibliophiles! The Young Reader Choice Award Nominees (junior and intermediate selections) are now in the library! The books are divided into two categories: junior and intermediate. Junior books are designed for grades 4-6 while the intermediate selections are geared for grades 7-9. No, that doesn‘t mean that you cannot take out an intermediate selection if you are in Grade 4! This is merely a guideline to cater to reading levels. Remember to use the 5 finger test to ensure that the reading level is right for you!
