Reading: How we help & a survey

by Alida Hanson on 2022-03-16T15:45:00-04:00 in Reading | 0 Comments

Did you know

...that the library offers you a new, popular fiction, graphic novels, memoir and other books for independent reading? Or that listening to audiobooks is the same thing as reading a book? It's easy to stop by the library to borrow a good book. We have lots of books on display, love to help you find things and make recommendations. We buy fiction for adults and young adults, fantasy, mystery, realistic fiction, graphic novels, manga, with a focus on books by Black authors, authors of color, and Indigenous authors. We believe every student needs to see themselves in books, and that it's important to see and understand others through reading. 


Optional Survey

Please take this Reading survey. The library will use your answers to improve the library. Thank you. 


What new books does the library have?

Check the New Books Guide on the library website. Right now we have a lot of new science, math, and nonfictions books. We are going to introduce a new world language collection soon, and more fiction and graphic novels are arriving daily!


How do I find good books in the library?

  • If you know which books you want, search the online Destiny Discover catalog on the library website. Reserve books for pick up by signing in to Destiny Discover with your Weston user/password, click on the book you want, and select "hold." The librarians will email when your book is ready for pick up.
  • Come to the library and browse. We have a lot of displays and many shelves of fiction and graphic novels. 
  • Browse the New Books guide on the library website for new books and themed collections.
  • Browse the Reading guide on the library website.
  • Browse the Summer Reading guides--all the books mentioned there are fabulous.
  • Download the SORA app on your device to browse and borrow free audio and e books. Need help? Try the SORA help guide or ask Mrs. Hanson.
  • Join the all school book club which meets twice a year. Our next meeting is April 14. 
  • Ask Mrs. Hanson and Ms. Azez, your teachers, your family and friends for recommendations. 


Where are the actual fiction and graphic novels in the library?

See this map for a general idea.



The library doesn't have what I want. What's next?

  • Ask Mrs. Hanson or Ms. Azez to order the book(s) from another library. 
  • Ask Mrs. Hanson or Ms. Azez to buy the books you want for the library collection. We value your recommendations.
