Reading Without Walls

We did it! During the month of May, we focused on reading outside of our "comfort zone." We read books in a different format, or about a character different from us, or about a topic we didn't know anything about. Some of us read in all three of these categories! Congratulations on expanding your reading horizons...

Biblionasium, Take 2

I would like us to revisit Biblionasium today and share books that fulfill our Reading Without Walls challenge. Here is our learning target:

  • I can search Biblionasium for a book that I have read this week as part of the Reading Without Walls challenge.
OR
  • I can search Biblionasium for a book that the library owns and fulfills one of the Reading Without Walls criteria.
