Library Notes
Here’s just a trinity of thought I’ve gleaned from research related to why your school librarian enjoys students reading the physical book over the e-books. First off, books aren’t just visual, they’re physical. When trying to remember a piece of information, people more readily recall where in a physical book the info appeared. Second, books (except from our library) are super customizable. You can underline, dog ear, scribble in the margin: these are all tactile ways of interacting with a book. And third, books send signals. Think of what a book’s length and weight are implicitly telling you when you hold it in your hands: you’re going to learn lots from me, but you’re going to have to invest some time and effort. That said, in this electronic age, let us still celebrate the physical book.

Basketball
Calling all parents….Catch the Viking fever and become a Girls A or B basketball coach. If you are interested in this great opportunity, please contact the office, Mrs. Watsabaugh.
