Teen Librarian Erin Gorski and Senior Library Assistant Elias Vazquez kicked off the first book discussion with Calvary Academy’s 6th grade class Tuesday January 22nd.  25 students and 2 teachers read Gary Paulsen’s The Hatchet” and took part in fun survival related activities based around the book.  Students discussed how the main character, Brian, learned to survive; took a “Woods Safety Quiz;” and then took to the outdoors to simulate what they would do if they were lost in the woods.

The librarians returned on Tuesday February 26th to host a discussion on Edward Bloor’s “Tangerine. Students discussed the main character Paul’s vision impairment, his family and school life; looked over copies of braille books owned by OCL; and took part in a blindfolded soccer game using a tangerine as the ball.
