Winter Reading Challenge

Now that the holidays are behind us and the long stretch of a New England winter lies ahead, how about signing up for the UHS Library's Winter Reading Challenge?

Your goal is to read as many books (fiction, nonfiction, graphic novel, etc. - any book counts!) as you can by the first day of spring.

The student who reads the greatest number of books will be entered into a raffle for an iTunes gift card.

Interested? Please see Mrs. Fournier for more details!  The challenge runs through March 20th. 

Good Luck!

BBC Podcasts

Interested in a little winter reading?  Want to try out a new podcast on that new iPod or iPhone you got over winter break?  Check out the BBC's radio adaptation of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.  A novel of love and loss at the time of the French Revolution.  Complete with various actors acting out the novel and some very atmospheric music.  Not your average podcast!
