Support Goldenview and the Library at the B&N Bookfair October 30th!

Goldenview Middle School’s Book Fair at Barnes & Noble
Saturday, October 30th
11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Goldenview is hosting a Book Fair at Barnes & Noble on Saturday, October 30th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  There is the potential to raise a lot of money for our school that day.  With every purchase Goldenview will receive a percentage of the proceeds.  There will be several tables with selections of books to buy for the library and your teachers.  If you buy and donate it to the library your name will be put on a bookplate for the inside front cover (and everyone else will be grateful to you for buying the book!)

The music department will be performing, along with face painting, door prizes and more.  Art students' work will be hung in the entrance of the store.

You have to mention Goldenview when you make your purchases in order for Goldenview to receive a percentage of the proceeds from the sales.

Don't forget to buy a book for the library!

Help the Teen Underground!

The Loussac Library is having a contest to design a logo for the Teen Underground--the new youth space in the library.  Did you notice that there is no cool picture to draw your eyes to this story?  It's because it doesn't exist yet!  So enter the contest and draw a logo.  If you win, then your logo will be what all teens see when they come hang out in their new area at the public library from now on!  Plus you'll be a specially invited guest at the grand opening in April.  So get drawing, because all entries are due by November 2nd.  You can pick up an entry form in the Goldenview library, at any public library, or you can download it here.  Turn in your entries before the 2nd to either the public library or Ms. Roohi.

Book Trailers!

Attention book AND movie fans, you can now have the best of both worlds!  There is a new trend in the book world, and it is called Book Trailers (think movie trailers about books)!  That's right, some industrious individuals are out there right now making trailers to your favorite books.  Some of them are even your fellow students!  So to celebrate this new trend, there is a competition going on right now to find this year's best book trailers.  If you want to have a say, go to this website, watch the book trailers, and vote before October 22nd!  Two of my favorite trailers are in the column to the left of this posting (now removed--sorry!).  And, if you're interested in making your own book trailer, come talk to Ms. Roohi.
