We are gearing up for summer break, and hope students can relax and enjoy the sunshine. We also want them to keep their minds active while they're away from the classroom. You may already know that we offer free digital books through OverDrive (http://wps.lib.overdrive.com), which provides 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student's mind than through reading? This summer, OverDrive is offering the OverDrive Summer Read program which is another way to keep students reading during summer break. A collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles are now available for multiple students to borrow beginning June 1 through 30. Please click the title for more.
On May 19, SDMS students Skyped with author Kwame Alexander after school in the SDMS Library Media Center. Students had an opportunity to ask Kwame questions about his book The Crossover, his latest release Booked, his writing process, and his work with LEAP for Ghana, an organization that he founded that has "provided literacy training for teachers, facilitated girls' empowerment workshops" and established a library that went from to 1 to 5,000 books! He also told students about his most influential college professor, poet Nikki Giovanni, dropped some hints about the prequel he's writing to The Crossover, and described the excitement and glamour of attending the Newbery Medal Award ceremony--the "Oscars" for writers!

Twenty students gathered in the SDMS Library after school on Wednesday, May 18 to talk with and ask questions of former Atlanta Falcon football player turned sports writer Tim Green. Tim spoke about his educational journey as an English major at Syracuse University, his life in the NFL, the importance of education, and his career as a writer. He also fielded questions from aspiring SDMS authors about the process of getting published, finding an agent, and the book he's most proud of--Unstoppable. On May 19, students will have the opportunity to Skype with author Kwame Alexander, award-winning poet and novelist. The author Skypes were funded through the generosity of SDMS PAC.
