The CHS Library may be closed over the break, but our ebook library is always open!
Curl up this winter with an ebook or audiobook. You can read on your phone or computer with the Sora app (it's free!).
If you've never used our ebook library (or if it's been a long time), you log in using your school email and the password for your school email. If you have trouble logging in to Sora, try both your new and old password.
November Is Gratitude Month
What are you thankful for?
With Thanksgiving at the end of the month, November is a good time to reflect on what you are grateful for. Did you know that gratitude is good for you? Scientific studies have shown that feeling thankful can improve sleep, mood, and your body's immune system while decreasing depression and anxiety.
Want to get started with gratitude? Try one of the activities on the right. A good place to begin is to write down three things you are grateful for at the end of each day. They can be anything, big or small, from your best friend to a rainbow to your favorite book.
Here in the library, we are grateful for books, our amazing library TAs, our families, our pets, and our health (but not necessarily in that order!).
Banned Books Week
Every year, there are hundreds of known attempts to remove books from bookstores, libraries and schools. That’s thousands of lost opportunities to explore ideas that fuel understanding. Words have power and access to diverse ideas makes all of us more powerful. Celebrate the freedom to read by reading your favorite banned book during Banned Books Week, October 1st-7th. Stop by the library and see Ms. Wheaton for more info, pick up a bookmark, or exercise your freedom to read.
Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th through October 15th
and celebrates the culture and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans.
Commemorate this month by reading one of our library's many great Latinx books!
CHS Book Club
CHS Book Club is back again for a new school year! Do you like to read and talk about books? Do you like snacks, hanging out, making crafts, writing, and pontificating about anything and everything (but especially about books, movies, shows, graphic novels, and webcomics)? If so, the CHS Book Club might be the place for you. Come meet kindred book-loving spirits. We meet Wednesdays at 3:15 to 5:00 (or whenever you want to leave if you don't ride the bus). Email Ms. Wheaton for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. We haven't picked our first book of the year yet, so come help us decide what to read.
