Thank you to all of our summer book reviewers!  Check out some of the reviews. Maybe you’ll find your next good read.

Mouseheart by Lisa Fielder
Surprising, Emotional, Page-turner: “This book will have your undivided attention and no matter how many times you reread it, you will never be disappointed.” (AM gr. 8)

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
Surprising, Emotional, Page-turner: “The book was a very intense book that was hard to stop reading, and it was very emotional.”(AM gr. 8)

Movers & Fakers by Lisi Harrison
Drama, Competition, Traitorous: “This sequel to the series The Clique, is ah-mazing! It is full of drama and abandonment – what’s better than an island full of gossip-hungry Alphas led by an eccentric ‘cliquetator’? And what happens when secrets are unveiled. Who’ll get the boot? Where do everyone’s loyalties lie” Who will be the last one standing – the ultimate Alpha?” (VB gr. 7)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
Magical, Adventurous, Vivid: “Harry Potter is probably the best book I have ever read. You get so involved in the book and with Harry, Hermione, and Ron that it becomes a ‘fandom’.” (CW gr. 7)


Thank You Summer Volunteers
We really enjoyed having all of our Teen Volunteers this summer.  They were an important part of the Summer Reading Club – welcoming visitors, signing kids up for the reading club, and giving out prizes.  Thank you very much for your time spent sitting at the “welcome desk” and we look forward to seeing many of you throughout the school year, on the High School Volunteer afternoons. Watch the newsletter and calendar for specific dates and times.  Questions? Email us at for answers to your questions and to be notified of other volunteer opportunities as they become available.
