Did you see the summer movie Paper Towns based on John Green’s book? Quentin is desperate to find Margo, the mysterious girl-next-door he’s in love with, and follows clues she’s left behind. His adventurous road trip from Florida to New York inspired the Library’s bulletin board! Did you have a favorite adventure this summer, on the road or right here at home?

Senior Hayden Knight is Brunswick High School Library’s “Top Patron” in terms of the number of books checked out this year!

Cam, Austin and Josh stopped by the Library to do an experiment for their Honors Biology class. They are testing various items around the school for bacteria. They swabbed one of the computer keyboards, and are letting the sample grow in a Petri dish. We’ll find out in a couple of days how much bacteria is on a computer keyboard in the Library!
UPDATE: The results are in from the AP Biology testing of bacteria around the school. As it turns out, quite a bit of bacteria was detected on a library keyboard. In fact, the keyboard had more bacteria than a stairwell railing, a bathroom pass and a water fountain handle! It’s good to know lots of students are using the library computers, and we’ll be sure to sanitize them! There are also 2 hand sanitizer dispensers in the Library, so please be sure to use them!
April is National Poetry Month and the Brunswick School District is celebrating by observing National “Poem in Your Pocket” Day being celebrated across the country on April 30th!

Book Club members and the BHS Library’s Teen Advisory Group recently went on a “Book Buying Excursion” to Barnes & Noble in Augusta to purchase books for the BHS Library! Melissa Orth (YA Librarian at Curtis Memorial Library) and I loved seeing the book-buying tastes of the students! We had a great time and left with six bags of wonderful books now available to all students at BHS! ~Mrs. Jerome
