Students Explore Exciting Genres

Junior-Senior High School seventh grade students engaged in a book tasting event in the library over the course of two days. They were introduced to library procedures and tasted books from three genres: biographies, mystery and realistic fiction. After they completed their menu courses of all three genres, they were able to check out a book from the library for independent reading.
