Today, I was lucky enough to visit SSMS to give book talks to the 7th & 8th grade classes in Mrs. Moulder’s classroom. Of course, I had fun (I love being able to visit the schools and meet some many of the teens that live in Anderson) booktalking and chatting with y’all!

We Beat the Street: How a friendship pact led to success

Happy Reading and hope to see you soon at the library!

A visit to Highland High School

Thanks to Mrs. Garner and her sophmore English classes for having me visit yesterday! It was the first time I had the chance to visit Highland and I must say it is a beautiful school and I hope to visit there more often. We chatted about how to get a library card and the fact that any student that attends school in the Anderson Community Schools Corporation can get a library card, pretty cool right? Also we explored the APL website and took a look at some of the databases that we offer that you can use for free with your APL library card. Hopefully, the tips I gave for how to research the databases was helpful. Remember, stop by the Information Services desk anytime you have a question or send it via our live chat!
