This #BookFace is going back to school, back to school!
…to prove to dad I’m not a fool. Just kidding, #BookFaceFriday never has to prove that. As all the kids, teachers, families, and librarians gear up for another year, we’ve got a great start to your youth book clubs! Check out “Because of Mr. Terupt” by Rob Buyea (Yearling, 2011). Written from the perspective of seven fifth graders, this children’s chapter book has a character that every type of kid can relate to. As a part of our NLC Book Club Kit collection, this read would be a great start to any school year.
“The characters are authentic and the short chapters are skillfully arranged to keep readers moving headlong toward the satisfying conclusion.”–School Library Journal
School is right around the corner!
As students across the state get ready for the new school year, we thought this throwback to 1970 would be perfect for this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
This 10″ x 8″ black and white photograph comes from the Nebraska Wesleyan University, Cochrane-Woods Library collection on the Nebraska Memories archive. The collection consists of mainly exterior shots of individual buildings, along with several views of the campus layout as it evolved from 1891 through the 1970s.
