Power Library We remained a Power Library for the 2010-11 school year as the incoming librarian came from a High Performing Power Library. NGHS will have to reapply for Power Library Status for the 2011-12 school year due the next incoming librarian not currently having that designation.

Library Mission

To empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.

Changes 

The Great Book Migration – we moved all nonfiction to the north side of the library and fiction to the south side. New student seating area – we took the furniture from the back room and created a nice, comfy seating area for students. We also removed a set of shelves so we could see that section better. Interfiling of Biography and Biography Collections, the 92s and 920s for better student access of these materials

Changes 2 

Cleaned out of all closets and cabinets in the library office and back area of all junk from the last who-knows-how-many years.

The New library website was created by Jenn as a teaching and learning tool for students and staff.

Changes 3 

New posters, signage and rugs were bought to „smarten‟ up the library and make it look more professional. The students noticed and are appreciative.

Richie Castro, Storyteller, brought in for “Read Across America” Day. He told the story of Kokopelli. He was so amazing, the kids were rapt.

Effects of District Budget Cuts 

Loss of Book Club second semester, did not have the time to recruit new members or read the books Less time to devote to library programs for students (had to cut programming for Banned Books Week, Teen Tech Week, International Library Day, Teen Read Week, Poetry Café, etc.) Less time and fewer really meaningful collaborations with staff and students (more cooperation and coordination) Not as many classes scheduled for the library due to one librarian not two Rely more on our student assistants and student secretaries to do daily tasks
