Any Point student (7th-9th grade) who has read at least 2 of the books on the list can vote for the Iowa Teen Award.
Any 9th grader at Point who has read at least 2 of the books on the list may vote.
Which authors will win the Iowa Teen Award and the Iowa HS Book Award for 2014? You will help decide, but only if you have read 2 or more of the books. Voting will take place in March. Which book will you read next? Check out the book trailers and other resources below to help you decide.
Spend some time exploring Hi-Fi for Wi-Fi, a new site that presents and curates video book trailers for historical fiction novels for young adults. The books are arranged into historical eras. New trailers will be added so check back. Have fun exploring.
Are you anxiously awaiting the publication of Hard Luck, number 8 in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, even though you've officially outgrown the series years ago? We are too and will have it in the library soon for your reading pleasure. But if you're ALSO looking for a new read that will appeal to an older and wiser Diary of Wimpy Kid fan, check out this list of read-alikes (books with similar themes, styles, characters, etc.) to the series.
The Book Fair will run from today through next Monday, October 21 from 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM in the Library. We will also be open from 3:30 - 8:00 PM on Thursday, Oct 17 and Monday, Oct. 21 in the front foyer. Please bring your parents or guardians by the fair when you come for conferences. There are many great books to choose from. All proceeds benefit the Point Library.
