Today we hosted our last Literary Lunch of the year. The Senior Edition of Open Mic’ featured our faithful performers, Braden Duffey and Hannah Van Den Bosch. What talent and beauty. All attendees enjoyed multiple songs performed while having lunch in the library. Join us next year for a new series of events!

Thanks to all of our VSBA Readers this year! I can’t wait for you to start reading from next year’s list!!
Congratulations to our 26 VSBA Readers this year! To become a VSBA Reader,
students had to read three titles from the Volunteer State Book Award
Young Adult list. Readers then attended a pizza/voting party, where they
cast their vote for their favorite. Our readers join other students from
around the state in awaiting the state winner. I have my pick…can’t wait
to see the students’ vote! If you’re interested in participating next
year, see me in the library!
