New Books Coming into the Media Center

The+New+Books+section
The ‘New Books” section

Being able to provide a quiet and comfortable setting where students can learn, do schoolwork, and read is the main purpose of a school media center. It gives study groups a place to meet up and discuss important material in their classes.

The Wayne Hills High School Media Center offers a Chromebook charging station, printers, and online newspapers. It also has a no-electronic quiet space and many different games or puzzles students can use to distress from a long day of school. These opportunities are free to use between 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Recently, the WHHS Media Specialist, Ms. Caldwell has bought new books for the school library. She mentions many Enola Holmes books, time-traveling books, several Makerspace-inspired books, and many award winning books, and more.

“[We also have] most of the Twisted Tales series, which are books that explore ‘What If’ situations related to classic Disney stories,” she wrote in an email. “[For example,] ‘What if Cinderella never tried on the glass slipper’ or ‘What if Ariel never defeated Ursula.'”

In fact, the Netflix show Enola Holmes is based on the novel itself by author Nancy Springer. The story follows the 14-year old Enola Holmes, younger sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes. It has a total of seven books and one short story. The story begins with Enola waking up one morning, only to find her mother missing. Determined to find any clues as to where her mother went, Enola disguises herself as a boy to not raise any suspicions.

More books include several “Pop Culture and Philosophy” nonfiction books, like Mister Rogers and Philosophy, Black Panther and Philosophy, and more. Pride and Prejudice and Pittsburgh¬†by Rachael Lippincottom, and romance novel See You Yesterday by Rachel Lynn Solomon are also books that recently got in.

Be sure to come by the media center or send an email to Ms. Caldwell if you are interested in reading one of these new books!
