The book that everyone has been waiting for……

The_House_of_Hades

The House of Hades by Rick Riordan is now available in the library….well, technically, we have it but the waiting list is so long that you may have to wait a bit to read it.  From all accounts, it is another hit with the only disappointing factor that you have to wait another year for the next one.

Rick Riordan has a great website. Check it out:

LBPSB Teen Online Bookclub

books with floating text

The high school librarians have created an online bookclub for those teens that are too busy to attend the school book clubs.  We know that you are busy so we have created a place where you can add your two cents whenever you have the time.

The set up allows you to choose the books that we will discuss for the month.  The librarians have put up 3 choices but if that choice does not interest you, there is the option to put in your own recommendation.  The choices will be available at the end of each month.  At the beginning of each month, the winning book title will be announced and the discussion will start.

This is a great opportunity for students across the Board to discuss their favourite books.  Vote today and leave your mark!

National School Library Day!

2013-10-25 20.32.57

Happy School Library Day!  LBPSB Librarians kicked off this day with a book domino at PCHS at 8:00 a.m. this morning.    What is a book domino?  Well, you get a lot of books and set them up like domino’s and then set them off.  We set them up on Friday night so that everything would be ready for this morning.  Check it out my pictures!
