News and Information
April is a busy month in the library world! This month we celebrate:
National Poetry Month, a month-long celebration of poetry in the United States. Visit our card catalog to view poetry resources we have available.
School Library Month, a month-long celebration of school library programs and the role they play in empowering learners. Feel free to stop by the library today to learn about digital apps, explore our resources, or simply enjoy a quiet place to read.
National Library Week (4/9-4/15), is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate every year in National Library Week.
Drop Everything and Read Month (4/12), a national month-long celebration of reading designed to remind people of all ages to make reading a priority activity in their lives. Why not stop by the library today and grab a book or Kindle so you can D.E.A.R.
In honor of National Poetry Month and D.E.A.R., the MVHS Library will host a "Poetry Read-Aloud" during National Library Week (4/10-4/14). Please join us after school to read, listen to, and discuss favorite poetry selections. All are welcome!
The genrefication of our fiction books (on the upper level) is now complete. Do you love Sports Stories, Romance, Fantasy, or Sci-Fi? Perhaps Horror or Suspense is more your style? You will now find the stories you love the most filed together by genre. Browsing the fiction section could not be easier!
Of course, you can still find books by using the card catalog. When you discover a book you want to read, make note of the "Location" to find out in which genre section the book is located.
Please keep in mind that many books can fall into different genres (For example: Dystopian/Sci-Fi; Horror/Suspense; Fantasy/Supernatural). Try to expand your horizons and chose books from genres you do not typically read.
If you need a specific book for a class or help in locating a particular book, please ask Mrs. Roby or Ms. Davidson for help.
Please remember to use our databases while researching for your class projects. Keep in mind that you must be signed in to your MVSDPride account to access the database password page. If you have any questions, we are more than happy to help you!
