Welcome Back Spartans!
We are back! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. There are lots of things going on in the library. This post should fill you in on all things LLC but as always if you have questions feel free to message Ms. Barnes on Teams or pop in to see her.
First up! New books! We have lots! Likely you will be coming in with your classes in the next couple of weeks but if not you are more than welcome to come in and browse in the mornings or at lunch. Don’t forget that you can also put books on hold and I will get them ready for you and let you know via a Teams message when they are ready to be picked up. Unsure of how? Watch this video. More videos can be found on the “How to Search the Library Catalog” tab.

Summer Reading Opportunities
Summer is almost upon us! With library circulation coming to a close I wanted to point out the many ways that you are able to continue reading throughout the summer months.
E-books through our school catalog are always available, see the “How to Access E-books” tab for instructions. There is also a video on how to use the Libby App with your public library card.
Surrey Public Libraries has a summer reading program specifically for teens. There are weekly prizes and grand prizes of $120 in gift cards.
There is also a Virtual Teens Book Club hosted by SPL. All of the meetings happen via Teams with quizzes and prizes.
If audiobooks are your thing, Sync once again has weekly free audiobooks through Sora. Registration is easy and each week there are two YA selections.
