This morning during nutrition Taft High School students are reading from their textbooks, favorite magazines and books. Students visiting during nutrition checked out fiction including new fantasy titles, realistic fiction, mysteries and the newest graphic novels which were just added to the collection this week. Parents have donated to the library through our Amazon.com "wish list." The newest titles were booktalked yesterday on Teen Literature Day for National Library Week. Our students are also reading biographies and other non-fiction for both personal and academic assignments.
In addition, students are reading on the library 20 computers which have Internet access and software to prepare school assignments such as Microsoft word.
