To start the year, Mrs. Jacquard has playing on the library window computer the top five finalists of the Book Trailer Academy Awards. These book trailers were created by Mrs. Richardson-Landry’s grade 9 students in June of last year and will be playing for the first two weeks of September.
Be sure to take a detour to the library hallway and see these outstanding productions. If a book trailer intrigues you, the library already has many of the books involved and can get those that it doesn’t have upon request.
