WRA Readers Are Leaders

The John D. Ong Library would like to recognize
Gerard Manoli as a February Reader/Leader. 

 Forensic scientist Theresa MacLean 
stumbles across a murder rather too close 
for comfort when she returns to the 
Medical Examiner’s office
following a late-night call to find 
one deskman missing and the other 
beaten to death. Written in blood 
above the dead man’s head is a 
single word: Confess 


Diversity Book Club

The first Diversity Book Club met on Friday, February 20th. 
A dozen students enjoyed discussing
"The House on Mango Street"
by Sandra Cisneros,
as well as enjoying treats, laughs and
friendly conversation
by the warmth of the Ong Library fireplace.

Their next meeting is March 6th.

Final Ong Library Sunday Coffeehouses

February 22 and March 1
2:30 - 4:30pm

3 Great Reasons to Attend Coffeehouse!
      The Coffee House is a rare social instance where
you can talk and interact at school without being confined
to a desk, or the five minutes you have in between classes.
                  So… many… GENRES!  
History books, mystery books, sports books, myths and legends, and MORE!
Who doesn’t like free stuff?  
Especially when it's sugary donuts and hot beverages?!??
