Incline High School Library                                                               September 24, 2014

“Reading makes all other learning possible.”

Time flies, and we are already into the fifth week of the 2014-15 school year. The library has been busy with students completing summer reading assignments, doing college research and applications, and participating in a myriad of other tasks.  The freshman class has completed the first round of MAPS testing in reading and math.

The library is open for students from 7:15 AM to 4:00 PM every day except Wednesday, which is our early release day.  Study Club which meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2:30 to 4:00 and has already been a big success with many students staying and taking care of all their homework before leaving the building.  We have two teachers on duty each day to supervise and help students with their work—and we have snacks!

We had our first Book Club meeting on Thursday September 18 and chose the book, Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea. The novel begins in a remote Mexican village where nearly all the local men have left to go north making the village an easy target for a group of nasty drug-dealing bandidos.  The 19 year-old protagonist Nayeli, who is inspired by the classic movie The Magnificent Seven, sets off with three friends on a journey to the United States to recruit seven men to defend and repopulate her hometown.  We are able to continue promoting reading through our Book Club thanks to the generosity of Linda Offerdahl at Dress the Part(y).  This is the fourth year that Linda has sponsored us by purchasing books for our student members.

We are very excited that Salinas Poet Laureate, James Golden, will be visiting some of our English classes on Friday October 3.  Mr. Golden is an activist for equal rights and the author of four books. This excellent opportunity for our students is made possible by Sierra Nevada College where the poet will be speaking on Thursday, October 2.

Our library has a diverse up-to-date collection of both fiction and non-fiction. Please encourage your students to visit us, take advantage of our services, and check out books.  Reading is our passion, and we love to engage students in conversation about their favorite authors.  You may visit us remotely at

Incline High School Library
Greetings from Incline High School Library where we are winding down another busy school year.  Libraries today are not only places to come and check out books, and our students use the library for a myriad of reasons including: accessing our databases for research projects; using the Internet for information, working on programs such as Storybook for projects; studying alone or in groups; meeting with friends; and completing homework. Teachers sign up to bring their classes to choose books and to complete projects.  
We would like to thank the Boosters Club for their annual donation of $1,000 which was spent on acquiring new fiction and non-fiction for our collection.  Thanks to this same group and a matching grant, we now have a Promethean Smart Board in the library available to teachers, administration, coaches, and other groups for presentations. We are so fortunate to have this caring and generous group of parents in our school community. We also want to thank Linda Offerdahl  and Dress the Part(y) for continuing to support literacy in our school by sponsoring our book club for the third year.  We meet during lunch and hope to continue this tradition next year.  
Study Club which meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2:30 to 4:00 has been a big success with many students staying and taking care of all their homework before leaving the building.  We have two teachers on duty to supervise and help students, and we hope to have the grant money to continue this program next year.
Our most exciting change this year is an upgrade to our cataloging system.  The new program is called Destiny which offers many new features, and students may access the program from home to see our collection, check due dates, fines, and access special lists created for a variety of classes.  See instructions on this page and on the front page of our IHS website.
The summer reading list is almost complete, and we will provide all students with a copy before they leave in June.  We will also send copies to Incline Middle School, Lake Tahoe School, and Tahoe Expeditionary School for any incoming freshmen.  Students may also access the summer reading list on Destiny.
Have a wonderful Tahoe summer!

Library Notes - December 2010

E-mail Print

Holiday greetings from the library where Milly and I have been busy helping teachers and students while updating our collection.    We have been weeding out-dated materials and have added 194 titles to our shelves.  Our focus thus far has been on fiction, the social sciences, history and geography.   We would like to thank the individual donors and the public library who always keep us in mind when discarding used books.  We would also like to thank the Boosters Club for their $1,000 donation which will be a tremendous help to us as we continue to up-grade.  We are so fortunate to have the support of such a generous community, and anyone who wishes to donate a book or monetary help will be greatly appreciated by the students of IHS.

We have begun the first ever IHS Book Club, kindly sponsored by Linda Offerdahl at Dress the Part(y), and we thank her for her continued support of the library.  We had 10 students attend our first meeting in November and after much discussion, we chose Unwind by Neal Shusterman as our first novel.  The club has already grown to 14 students, and Milly and I are excited to meet again with the student on December 6 at lunchtime to discuss this provocative novel and choose a new one.  We will be asking students who are able to give a donation towards the purchase of the books.

Classes sign up to use the library daily to conduct research and for a variety of other projects.  The social studies department recently produced Photo Story slide shows; the freshman English classes completed The Dead Poet research project; the sophomore English classes explore material for their speeches and debates; the Spanish classes discover the Spanish-speaking world;   We the People students meet to delve into The Constitution and work on their testimonials; and enrichment and English classes choose novels to read.

Our new Study Club meets in the library on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:15 to 4:15.  Four teachers are scheduled each day to tutor students and help them with their homework.  Please encourage your students to attend.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to complete all their work before going home.

Milly and I have also created a shelf with free books for students.  Students are welcome to browse the shelf and select any book to keep.  So even if a student has an outstanding fine, he or she can always leave the library with a book in hand.

We have also initiated a ‘Wish List” for students so that they can let us know the titles and authors that they would like to see on our shelves.   Students simply write the titles on the easel placed at the entrance to the library, and we will do our best to make their wishes come true.

Thanks again to Linda Offerdahl at Dress the Part(y) who kindly donated our beautiful holiday decorations.

Once again, we wish you the all the best of the holiday season and a happy and successful new year.
