D2 eLibrary

Get a book 24/7 and read it on your device!! School District #2 has a lot of ebooks available to download and read. You will need to download the app Overdrive, get your ID # from your librarian, and then check out books and read. These books are available everyday and everywhere. Curious? Come see Mrs. Hoyt.

Poster ... and more Posters

Both Book Club groups have been busy reading a variety of genre and titles. They decided it would be fun to create posters to help convince other students to read these books. Which one are you interested in? Stop by the library and check out these great books.

And So We Start Another New Year...

The 2016 / 2017 school year is off to a fresh and exciting start and Castle Rock Library again has 2 Book Clubs. Our Wednesday club meets from 3:15 - 3:45 and our Thursday club meets from 7:30 - 8:00. We have a new group of students ready for a fun filled year of reading, talking, and creating. Our after-school group are our Night Owl's and the morning group is called the Slayer's. We meet every other week. Stop in and join us.

Last Year Did Happen!

I just realized that last year's posters and pictures and posts had all been left in the draft folder. We did have a great year last year and I wanted to at least recognize those students that came out and read, talked, created, and fun with Book Club. You guys were an awesome group and I will miss the lively discussions and laughter. Keep Reading

Welcome to the NEW school year!

Welcome to 2015/2016 Book Clubs at Castle Rock Middle School. It is always exiting to begin with new groups and work with such fun students. Here's to a new year and new books.....

Read Box aka. Red Box

During I Love to Read month the Castle Rock book club students wanted to share some exciting reading with others. We had come across this fun idea that was a play on a Red Box and decided that it would be fun to promote some good books in our library. We didn't just look at doing pictures though, too plain. So the students made video book trailers and posters for the books, then connected a QR code to them. The QR code was then printed, cut out and glued to our Read Box. We had a lot of fun connecting technology AND reading. Stop by and scan a code, you may discover a new and exciting book.

Poster, Poster, and Another Poster

"The Challengers" have also been reading.  They broke up into 3 groups and each group read a different book.   Their idea was to create a poster that would be an advertisement for their book.  They want to challenge the other middle school students to try out these books and let us know what you think.  I think they did an awesome artsy job on the posters.....way to go gang!
