Promote Reading @ Your Library
Ask your library media specialist to present booktalks for your students! Whether presenting the newest books, a variety of genres, or a customized booktalk based on your curriculum, students will enjoy learning more about literature and authors whose work "lives" on our shelves, just waiting to be discovered. Booktalks can be presented in the library or in your classroom.
