If an effort to get students interested and reading the 2016 Tayshas books, we held a speed dating event in the library this week. Students sat a table with a variety of Tayshas books and were asked to choose a book by its cover (oh, the horror!) and had 4 minutes to “date” a book before giving their first impression. The students seemed to really enjoy the “dating” theme of the activity. I’m happy to report that many students fell in love with a Tayshas book and checked it out to get to know it even better.
Looking for some great reads to start the New Year off right? Look no further than the 2016 Tayshas List! These books are chosen by a committee to encourage young adults (and adults!) to read books for pleasure. These books are the best of the best!
