One Day Author Panel

This week, we had the pleasure of hosting authors Marjan Kamali, Diana Renn, and Tara Sullivan in an author panel sponsored by the Needham Education Foundation. This year's One Day workshops revolved around the theme of identity. To explore this concept, our panel focused on identity in fiction and crafting authentic characters. Each panel session was very different as the conversation was driven by student questions.

Happy 2018!

There have been some big changes in the library collections and we are happy to introduce a new organization in fiction. Books are now grouped together by the following genres: fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, and sports. About half of fiction collection remains in general fiction and all fiction sections are still organized by the author's last name. We hope this will make browsing for books easier for you and we welcome any suggestions!

This week, the students of Ms. Bunda's forensic science classes investigated the mysterious murder of Myra Mains. Students collected and analyzed evidence, interrogated suspects, and prepared a case against their prime suspect. Who do you think did it: Paige Turner, Ida Crooke, or Shay D. Thyme?

Savvy Students Conquer the Library
We've added a fun spin to this year's library orientations! Students worked in groups to solve clues and complete tasks. Each step was designed to introduce students to available  resources and familiarize students with the library space. Did you miss orientation? Have you forgotten how to do something? Check out the library's Lib & Learn page for help videos on various topics.

We are very excited to offer Personal Shopping @TheNHSLibary! Students visited with their English classes to meet their best book matches for independent reading selection. If you are interested in this service, complete this brief survey and we would be happy to compile a short list of best book matches created just for you. Happy reading!
