This year in addition to our Halloween decorations, I decided to create a mystery display to go along with them. I showcased some of our favorite mysteries in the library with footprints to lead students to the media center where they can check them out.

With over 10,000 fiction books to choose from, it’s sometimes overwhelming for students to find just the right book. To make this process easier, I’ve divided the fiction section by genre. Our books are divided into Sports Fiction, Graphic Novels, Realistic Fiction, Science Fiction, Horror, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Adventure, and Fantasy genres. To figure out which genre best matches a student, I developed a short quiz to help narrow down areas of interest. The Fiction Genre Quiz has no scientific basis; it’s just for fun. Hopefully it will give students a starting place when searching for a good book. Huge thanks to for sharing her quiz so I could edit with our genres.
Huge thanks to all the participants in the Candy Corn Pumpkin Contest. David King won with his guess of 150 pumpkins and was able to take home the entire jar. Thank you David, for being a great sport for the photo! 🙂
We’ve just completed our most current bulletin board outside the media center and I’ve already heard kids singing with our revised lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s popular song. We had a lot of fun creating the giant-sized notebook paper. It was a challenge to create though! I’ve posted a sign asking for student doodle artwork to add to the board so please get to working on those doodles! Bring them by the media center so I can add them for you.
