Scholastic Book Fair

UPDATE: Our book fair was a big success! With your donations we were able to purchase over 200 books for kids in need this holiday season!

Our fifth (yes, fifth!) annual Book Fair will be held from Monday, November 29th - Wednesday, December 1st in the school library. Proceeds will be used to buy books for children’s charities, the school library, and to support activities of the school’s chapter of the National English Honor Society (NEHS), such as our annual author visit. On Monday, November 29th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, the book fair will feature a special Family Night in conjunction with the monthly PTA meeting. Parents, students, teachers, families, and the school community are invited to attend.

Unmask the Heroes

If you stop by the library before December 22nd check out the new bulletin board and "Unmask the Heroes." Twenty teachers have posed behind masks. Can you tell who is under those masks? The student(s) to get the most answers correct wins a prize! Come by the library before December 22nd to enter.

The Mepham High School Library Catalog has a whole new look! It's called Destiny Quest. Teachers can now create resource lists for their projects. Resource lists can include books we have right here in the library, teacher-approved Websites, and even articles from databases we subscribe to. Students can log in and create their own book lists too. Anyone can view the 10 Ten Books that circulate in our library and check out our new arrivals. You can also view what books are available in Calhoun, Kennedy, Merrick and Grand libraries. What is your "destiny"?

The Jolly Roger

To my surprise a pirate has taken up residence in our library by way of a very genrous donation from Mr. William H. Tschirhart (Class of '44). Legend has it if you rub his booty (the treasure chest that is) you will have good luck all day long. Is the legned true? You be the judge!
