Resource Lists to Help You Choose a Book

Spring is here!  Spring and Summer Choice Reading assignments are upon us.

In order to help English 1 students choose a novel for their upcoming literature circle assignments, we have made public resource lists viewable to students.  There are several resource lists designed to help students find a book that fits their interests and values.

To access the resource lists, go to and select Carroll High School.  Choose the catalog tab, and the resource lists are linked on the left.  Selecting the title will take you to more information on the book, and selecting the Titlepeek Icon under the picture of the book cover will take you to even more information including professional reviews to help you determine if the content of the book fits your interests and values.

Check back often for updates and be sure to let Mrs. Loomis know if you have suggestions for a resource list or a book that needs to be featured.

This document explains the library genre stickers and also the Resource Lists in more detail.

Blind Date With a Book

During the month of February, we would like to fix you up with a blind date--a book of course!  A variety of books are wrapped up in secretive brown paper.  You will not know the identity of your blind date until after you check it out.  You can read from the descriptions on the paper to see if you think you can find a good match.

Sure you might be disappointed, may end up having a great read with something you would not have chosen for yourself.  With each book is a Rate Your Date slip.  Say what you want about your date.  You will not hurt anyone's feelings!

Even if your date turns out to be a dud, all is not lost.  With each slip you return, you can enter our raffle for some fun prizes--Starbucks gift cards, chocolate candy, and more.

Stop by the library anytime in February.  Who knows, you may find your next book love!
