New Books 

Make sure you check out the new book displays in the library.  I try to order books every couple of months, plus we have new books arriving from the book fairs as well. If you have any book suggestions, please leave me the title and author.  I always try to honor student and adult requests.  

 

Books For Len


Every year, thanks to the generosity of the folks at the Latta/Long Pond McDonald's and the help of the faculty at Northwood who come in to volunteer, we have extra money available to purchase new materials for our library collection.
Check out the title page of these books in our library and see the special Books for Len stamp. It shows a drawing of a starfish and says, "You can't possibly make a difference for all of them." He smiled, picked up yet another starfish and threw it into the sea. "Made a difference to that one."  Some newer items now have a special book plate designated with "Books for Len" on it.  Either way, you'll find a special book on our shelves in Memory of Northwood teacher, Len O'Lare.
