WINTHROP MIDDLE SCHOOL LIBRARY
It is our goal to create an inviting library experience for students and staff alike where the imagination is celebrated, 
knowledge is expected and reading is FUN!!


Love On A Leash

Love on a leash is committed to bringing comfort, happiness, and healing to people nationwide by increasing public awareness of pet-provided therapy.  This volunteer organization provides an accessible certification process that allows a qualified therapy team to provide effective pet-provided therapy services in our community.

Meet Oliver and Abigail...they will be visiting our WMS library monthly with their trainers to give students the opportunity to read to them.







 
What's better than reading to a dog?  Not much...
 according to our students!!

 Movie vs. Book

  

Which would you choose?  Are books typically better than the movie?  Head into the library now until the end of the year and check out our movie/book combo's...then decide for yourself!!
          


Recently the library received funding through Donor's Choice and with that funding, new shelving and books have been added to the library!  This new shelf is now our "Author Spotlight".  Every two months a new author will be chosen and their books will be displayed as well as a short bio about them.



















































                     

Movie/Book Quote Contest


How well read are you?  Are you a movie buff?  Come challenge your knowledge and see if you can win some movie tickets!  There are 8 movie quotes and 8 book quotes that you have to guess which movie or book goes with the quote.  HINT...there are movie and books posters hung in the library windows and each quote belongs to some of the posters.  But BEWARE...there are more posters than quotes!!!





****ATTENTION****
Grab & Go
Is homework and sports keeping you from reading for enjoyment?  How about a Quick Read book?  What is a Quick Read Book?  Q.R. Books are short stories with only 32 pages each...they are easy, fast and fun to read.  Here's how Grab & Go works:
1. Grab a Quick Read Book from the display.
2. Write your name on the clipboard with the corresponding number from the cover of the book.
3. Go find a place to read...perhaps by the "fire".
There are 15 titles to choose from!!
