Oh Books, Where Art Thou?!
Fiction- in the bookcases under the wonderful windows. Fiction is arranged in alphabetical order by author within genres. What is a genre? It is a subject: Action, Classics, Fantasy, Sci Fi, Graphic Novels, Suspense, Romance... Check Destiny to locate the genre.
Nonfiction- bookcases against the wall with the new reading chairs. Nonfiction is in numerical order from 001 to 999, but I'm getting ready to genre-ize it too!.
I always have special book displays all over the media center. See something of interest? Grab it, check it out and go!

Ms. Williams' students recorded their book reviews. We made QR codes of the reviews, and used them to create our own "Readbox". As one student said, "Tres cool". Love it! ;>)
