What is the one Must-Read Nonfiction for High School Seniors title that pops into your head?

Emboldened by the interesting responses to my plea on Facebook for Must-Read Nonfiction titles for high school seniors, I'm going LARGE to reach my G+ and Twitter supporters. :)

Won't you weigh in with the one Must-Read Nonfiction for High School Seniors title that pops into your head?

Here are the Facebook comments so far. You should be able to add a comment, since the post is public.

Aren't the responses eye-opening? I'll definitely be purchasing the titles we don't already have.

If you don't have a Facebook account or you would rather recommend privately, you can use the Google form below.

OR, you can leave a must-read title on Twitter. Simply add my Twitter handle @mauililbrarian2 to your post.

Thanks in advance for your input. Our Seniors will appreciate it very much!

Our Library's Sixth Annual Keiki Christmas Storytelling Hour -- A Winter Wonderland of Fun!

My little group of student readers selected a Winter Wonderland theme for our library's sixth annual Keiki* Christmas Storytelling Hour, the last stop for the children at the Alumni Keiki Christmas Party.

Oh what fun it was! ☃

4 student readers and the librarian, with some of 
the student-made snowflakes in the background.

Aria reads The Polar Express. The keiki participated  
with silver bells they could take home with them. "Believe."

Group photo. Check out the scarves. Brrrr! 

Afterwards, a spontaneous mom-read of Winnie the Pooh's 
The Merry Christmas Mystery, with grandma looking on.

Mahalo to Aria, Sean, Mikhaila, and Patricia, for making the event extra special!

Merry Christmas, everyone!


*Keiki = children
