THE BOOK

"Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra's current gift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother's hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows. Akos is the son of a farmer and an oracle from the frozen nation-planet of Thuvhe. Protected by his unusual current gift, Akos is generous in spirit, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. Then Akos is thrust into Cyra's world, and the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. Will they help each other to survive, or will they destroy one another?

Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth's stunning portrayal of the power of friendship—and love—in a galaxy filled with unexpected gifts." 31/2 stars out of 4 on Good Reads

BOOK CLUB DETAILS

The student book club will host its first meeting this Thursday from 8 to 8:45 in the library's conference room. This month, we are reading and will discuss Veronica Roth's Carve the Mark. Roth is the author of the popular Divergent series. Breakfast (pancakes this month) will be served with some great conversation to follow breakfast. Club members will also choose our October book. Copies of the book are still available for checkout.

All are welcome. Come; check it out. No registration is required.


17 years ago today, the worst terrorist attack perpetuated on American soil occurred. Today, we commemorate this event. If asked, many of the adults in the building could tell you exactly where they were when they heard the news. To learn more about this event, take a minute to read this brief article available on History.com or this touching article about a rescue dog named for one of 9/11's first responders.










The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, has officially announced the 2018 Teens' Top Ten Nominees.

The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country selected by YALSA to participate.

This year's list of nominees features 25 titles that were published between Jan. 1, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2017.

The Doerr Library has many of these titles on display near the entrance to the library. How many of these titles are some of your favorites too?


On Friday, September 7th, 2018 from 3:10 to 5:00, the Doerr Library will host its first Game Night of the school year. Our Wii and GameCube systems will be set-up in the group learning rooms and boards games will be available in the library proper. This month, our featured game is Qwixx. Qwixx is a quick playing dice game that's easy to learn, lots of fun and includes a few twists. Invite some friends and plan to attend. Hot dogs, chips, candy and soda will be sold throughout the event. See you in the library!


The Great American Read initiative is an opportunity to build community through great books. PBS has partnered with booksellers and libraries to launch this campaign to determine America's favorite novel. They have narrowed the list to 100 books and are asking you to read as many as you can and vote on your favorite book from the list.

What a great way to connect with some inspiring stories. Many of these novels have transformed peoples lives. Take a look at the list, pick out a couple of titles, read them, talk about them, and vote for your favorite.
