I am so very excited because a partial shipment of our new books has arrived! I have 263 brand new exciting books for you all to check out when you return to the library this week! For the first time ever, our library now offers three manga series (Naruto, Dragonball-Z, and Vampire Game) as well as several vampire series (Vampire Academy, Vampire Kisses, and Vampire Diaries). I also have several new urban teen series for all my girls who love those drama books (Drama High, Denim Diaries, Hotlanta) and lots of Ripley's Believe It or Not, Bart Simpson, and Boondocks for the guys! There are so many books that I just know you're going to love...I can't wait to introduce you to these authors and titles soon. I will be posting book trailers and booktalks throughout the weeks ahead so keep checking the blog! Feel free to leave comments on the trailers or posts about books that you've read to let your peers know what you thought!

Deep, Dark, and Dangerous

For all my readers who are always requesting a "scary" book....

39 Clues

Keep Reading!

Hello Pearl C. Readers! It seems like it has been awhile since I've seen your beautiful faces because of the holidays and then the library being closed for inventory. Now we have a week of testing and then two days off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so it will be practically February until we get back into a regular routine! Our book clubs are on pause until our schedule returns to normal. Girls and Boys Book Clubs at lunch on Fridays will resume on January 22. Our Twilight Book Club will resume on Thursday, January 21. Soon I will be passing out the book club books to dedicated members to read at home, so don't miss out! Also, Twilight book club members will also be learning how to create book trailers and making their own trailers for the Twilight saga, so I'm really excited to get started on that.

I'm eagerly waiting for our latest shipment of books to arrive. Sometime in the next couple of months we will be receiving lots of new, fun titles so stay tuned! I will be posting book trailers of some of our new books soon!

This semester when you come with your reading classes we are going to be talking more about research and how to find reliable sources of information on the internet. We will also be talking about great resources such as DASH (online homework help) so I look forward to seeing you when you visit with your reading teachers.

See you soon! Keep reading!
