You may have an opportunity to participate in a Bring Your Own Device 4 Reading (BYOD4Reading) day in your Reading/Literacy/English class before the school year is done. in that case, you will use the resources linked here. But if not, you can use these tools on your own to access amazing ebooks and audiobooks all summer long!
We will be adding NEW books after July 1 so check back often.
Have a great summer, everyone, and keep reading!

Sometimes reading a true (aka nonfiction) story or essay can give you just the right insight to understand and relate to characters that you meet in a novel or short story (fiction). Check out these prefect fiction-nonfiction pairs that will help you dive deeper into your reading. Check out a pair today at the Point Library.
Good-bye winter (and Olaf!) and hello spring (Earth Day coming soon) @ the Point Library. Happy Spring Break everyone!
At the beginning of this new year, I set a goal to read at least 52 books (1 each week) AND to keep a record of those books in my notebook and in a Destiny Discover Collection. Here's my collection so far. Check it out by clicking on the image below.
You too can make a collection for any project. Collections can include not just books but also websites, videos, documents, notes, and just about anything in digital form. I encourage you to make a collection with your reading log for the year!
And, if you find yourself stuck at home with nothing to read on this endless parade of snow days, do not despair! You can checkout an ebook or audiobook from home! Email Mrs. Wilding if you need help.
The 1st Annual Holiday Short Film Festival will be held this Wednesday after school in the Library. This event is sponsored by the Point Library YAC! (Youth Advisory Committee). The admission charge is one (1) non-perishable food item. Food will be donated to the Linn & Johnson County Veterans.
Everyone is welcome! Snacks will be provided. Please have rides pick you up by 5:00 PM. All school rules apply.
Now you can browse audiobooks by genre. Download one today on your phone or computer so you can take it with you wherever you go during the upcoming holidays. Audiobooks are GREAT for long car rides! Click on the image below to start browsing.
