WELCOME BACK!

Do you love reading about the possible future in books like "Cinder"?

Maybe you are planning on reading "Stargirl"  before you see it streaming on-line?

Perhaps a trip to the fantasy world of Harry Potter is where you'd like to go?

Would you prefer to travel back in time to the Vietnam War and find out about what it was like during that war?

      The KMS Library is being rearranged to help students find the books they want to read. 

Fiction books are now shelved according to their genre. So now you can go to the Science Fiction shelves and pick up the sequel to "Cinder".  On the Realistic Fiction shelves you will find a copy of "Stargirl" and the sequel.  All eight "Harry Potter" books as well as "Quidditch Through the Ages" can be found on the Fantasy shelves.  "Vietnam: I Pledge Allegiance" can be found on our Historical Fiction shelves.  Make sure you see the new library set-up and check a few books!

WHAT DOES READING REVEAL TO YOU?

When you read,
Do you discover other planets?  Do you find fantasy kingdoms?  Do you learn how to create LEGO masterpieces?   Do you uncover the clue that solves a mystery?  Do you recognize famous people from the past?  Do you find information about tree kangaroos or about robots?

Whatever you like to read or whatever subject you want to know more about - you can find fabulous books at the KMS Library.  Come in at lunch or before and after school!
