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.

Personal Shopping

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!

Tara Sullivan Author Visit

This week, the NHS Library hosted author Tara Sullivan! She discussed her life experiences and writing process in shaping her books. Perhaps most importantly, Tara Sullivan stressed the importance of books in connecting the world and empowering readers to enact change in their communities and beyond. We are incredibly grateful to the Needham Education Foundation for funding Tara Sullivan's visit and eagerly look forward to more programs in the future.
