High School Library
Library UpdateAs we transition the high school library into a space for our technology and robotics classes, we want to make sure that families are aware that students can still access high school library services online and through the middle school library. Students can email Beth Kellett, at email@example.com, by 8am to request a pass to the middle school library during their study center. Books can be checked out in the middle school library and returned to the high school main office. Please see the main office if you have any questions!
Laurie Halse Anderson is a New York Times bestselling author whose writing spans young readers, teens, and adults. Combined, her books have sold more than 8 million copies.
Laurie has been nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award three times. Two of her books, Speak and Chains, were National Book Award finalists, and Chains was short-listed for the prestigious Carnegie medal. Laurie was selected by the American Library Association for the 2009 Margaret A. Edwards Award and has been honored for her battles for intellectual freedom by the National Coalition Against Censorship and the National Council of Teachers of English.
In addition to combating censorship, Laurie regularly speaks about the need for diversity in publishing and is a member of RAINN’s National Leadership Council. She lives in Philadelphia, where she enjoys cheesesteaks while she writes.
