News from the Upstairs Library

So much has been happening with the library program this past month!  On April 12, author Kirby Larson was here.  Most of our students got to hear her presentation in the gym, and a few even got to have conversations with her throughout the day.  We thank her for traveling all this way to Iowa to share more about her life and her writings.  We are also very grateful to the Traer Community Foundation and the Tama County Community Foundation for helping to fund Ms. Larson's visit.


Still looking for a book to read before the end of the year?  The 2016-2017 Teen Award and Iowa High School Book Award winners are out on the shelves and ready for you to check out!  You can read descriptions of these winners here:  


As we get more new books, we try to also find new homes for a few.  Believe it or not, the library owns quite a few older books that were published as far back as the 1940's! We are offering some of these vintage books up for sale at a starting price of $15 per book.  Please contact me at bjensen@n-tama.k12.ia.us if you would like to see a list.  


As we approach the end of the year, please make sure to return your library books in the near future, but no later than Friday, May 20. Thank you!
