So good to be back in the Allatoona Library!

It has been great to see all our awesome students this week! Everyone seems to be excited to get back to school for 2nd semester! I just finished the best book! You may want to check out Warcross by Marie Lu if you enjoy gaming, science fiction and/or fantasy books. Check out this Goodreads review to learn more!




Thinglink, TouchCast, Skype field trips and it’s only Wednesday!


The library has been super busy this week! I have enjoyed working with lots of Brit Lit students who are currently reading Macbeth. Mrs. Taylor’s students created Thinglink projects and compared the themes of Macbeth to current events, music and other media. Mrs. Bolls’ students created TouchCast videos reenacting the story of the death of King Duncan and the dark foreshadowing of things to come. I am always impressed with the creativity of our students! Mrs. Kurtz took Coach Vickrey’s students on an awesome Skype field trip into a volcano in San Salvador!

I am looking forward to meeting the the Bookaneers tomorrow morning at 7:45 to discuss Trouble is a Friend of Mine!

Now is a great time to return your overdue books and be sure to stop by to pick up something to read over Thanksgiving Break!

Bookaneers Book Club!

Looking for a new book to read? This is one of the best fantasy books we’ve (Mrs. Morgan & Mrs. Cochran) read in a while! It’s on the 2018-19 TOME It List and is a YALSA 2018 Teens’ Top Ten nominee. That’s a pretty big deal for YA books!

“A second in Caraval seemed richer than an ordinary second, like that moment on the cusp of sunset, when all the colors of the sky coalesce into sunset.” (Garber 142)  Wouldn’t you like to visit Caraval? Stop by the library to check it out.
