Week in Review: Banned Books edition

This week is Banned Books Week and the library displayed some frequently banned and challenged books and the reasons for the challenges. Here’s Charlie and Elijah browsing the display.

Their favorite reason for a book being banned is “It is a real downer” for The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.

On Monday, Ms. Thomas’ AP Computer Science Principles class visited to learn about where to search for tech innovations, what white papers are, and how to write concisely, which is not an easy task! Tuesday was a busy day with Mr. Crabb’s 7th graders visiting to learn about databases as well as Cookies, Coloring, and Conversation at lunch time. Wednesday and Thursday saw Ms. Nellis’ 9th graders in to begin researching for their Ancient Civilizations projects. They even got to go on a field trip – to the 930s (the corner where the ancient history books are–we didn’t actually time travel to the year 930 although that would have been pretty cool!) On Friday we had a visit from our local public librarian, Kim, to deliver library cards to the 10th graders and talk about resources at the public library to help the Sophomores with their projects.

Bonus:

It’s beginning to look like fall in the library office!
