The White Oak Media Center welcomed students back to school this week. All sixth, seventh and eighth graders visited the library to check out books and receive a chromebook (if they did not receive one during registration). We caught lots of readers! Who will we catch next?
The Roughneck Readers met today and started reading The Thirteenth Goldfish by Jennifer Holm.
“What if you and your grandfather were the same age? Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She missed her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough…he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this gawky teenager really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth?”
—The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer Holm
