Summer Reading 2012

It's almost summer (YAY!) and the summer reading lists are hot off the press.  To help you make the all important decision of what to read over the summer, we have surveyed a number of faculty members and students for their personal recommendations from the general summer reading list and put the results up on display in the library.  A preview of some picks appears below, but stop by to check out the full display.  

The entire 2012 General Summer Reading List can be found by using the link provided, or on the BBN School website, where the entire summer reading list (including department by department requirements) can be found.  

Mr. Leith pointedly approves of Seabiscuit.

Ms. Dow was too engrossed in Empire Falls
to comment!

Book Swap!

Mr. Williams grows strong from
literary knowledge at the Book Swap.  
In April, the Almy Library joined forces with the Upper School Community Service club to host the second annual Upper School Book Swap and Bake Sale!  The second annual Book Swap, which benefits More Than Words, was a great success.  

Thanks to the donations of books and baked goods from the Upper School community, we donated somewhere over 150 books and DVDs, along with all baking sale proceeds.  Thank you to all parents, students, and faculty who clearly did some spring cleaning, the students and faculty who attended, and to all the wonderful student volunteers from the Community Service Club and the Student Library Advisory Board who staffed the event!

Our lovely student volunteers (Lydia '14 and Edwin '15)  staff the Book Swap cart
in the Commons while Mr. Williams and Tyler '15 do some shopping.
