Books on Display (Elizabeth Bennett)

Homecoming, by Cynthia Voight, display by Joi Lambert.

 These displays are a way of grabbing your attention so you will read the book. Another way is reading the back of a book. 
 Soon, if you read a book from the Hueytown Middle School Library that you think others will enjoy you can send in a summary. First, tell us the book's title and author. Next, write a brief summary about it without giving away to much. Then, you can choose to sign your name, "Anonymous", or make up a code to hide your identidy(Ex. Bookluvr28) with at least 6 characters. The last thing you have to do is drop it off at the Library in the designated area. After a few days you may see your summary on the Library's blog. 

Criss Cross, by Lynne Perkins, display by Erica Anderson
