This year’s Allen-Stevenson Book Fair took to a new space, while the schoolhouse is undergoing building work. Barnes & Noble, not far from the School, provided the perfect venue for a chance to gather around an abundance of books for readers of all ages. Tables were set up by division and genre, as is the norm at the Fair, and were piled high with an impressive selection of books curated by the Library team.
We know you are planning to read a ton over the summer and where better to get ideas than boys in the Middle School? To see book trailers, reviews, quizzes and more, visit the Fifth Grade digital bulletin board. These three book blogs from Fourth and Fifth Grade boys will definitely spark excitement about books! There's Book Pigeon from Marcus L., as well as Book Worm and TSN Book Blog from boys in the Fifth Grade.
Want to listen to an audiobook from the library’s OverDrive collection? We have new devices in the library for you to borrow so that you can listen to the book of your choice. The first step is to choose the book that you want to hear from OverDrive. Then, fill out this form and check back a few hours later with Mrs. Reid at the circulation desk.
Expand your reading horizons by Reading Without Walls. We challenge all A-S students to explore books about characters who look or live differently than you, topics you haven’t discovered, or formats that you haven’t tried. Once you have read a book for the challenge, please see Mrs. Reid in the library so that you might put your very own sticker (with your name and the title of the book you read) on our "brick wall." Please read these guidelines for specific information.
