Everybody has a Story... What's Yours?

This year our focus will be on looking at the stories that make us who we are. You may find people like you in fiction books, you may find people who inspire you in nonfiction, you may explore experiences and characters vicariously.

at your library

eBooks are here!
MackinVia introduction by Mrs. Parks

We are testing the waters with eBook readers. The MackinVIA app works on mobile devices including the iPhone/iPod Touch and Android smartphones as well as the iPad, Kindle, Android and Nook tablets. The app is also available for Mac and Windows desktop computers.

There is a limited selection of books available now, but let me know how this service works for you and I will buy more if we like it.

A Note about responsible reading

In a library that serves students ranging in ages from eleven to fourteen, a wide variety of materials are needed. What is interesting and appropriate for eleven-year-olds may not be interesting and/or appropriate for fourteen-year-olds and vice versa. When students first visit the library each year, Mrs. Parks will tell them that "Libraries are all about choice. If you choose a book that makes you uncomfortable or that would make your parents uncomfortable, please return it and find a book you can completely enjoy."

Parents can help students enjoy the library. Ask students what they are reading and talk to them about their choice.

If you have questions or comments, always feel free to contact Sandy Parks, sparks@harrisonburg.k12.va.us
