LIBRARY ADVISORY BOARD
Let Your Voice Be Heard!
The Library Advisory Board will not take place during the 2020-2021 school year, as the Library Media Specialist has been reassigned as a classroom teacher.
The Library Advisory Board consists of 15 members, including a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. These individuals assist the Library Media Specialist with all things library, including book selection and planning library programming and events.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
The fall 2020 Scholastic Book Fair has been canceled due to the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions and our desire to ensure everyone's safety.
Each year, the Chittenango Middle School Library hosts both a fall and spring book fair. All proceeds go toward library-related activities, including clubs and events.
TEEN BOOK FESTIVAL
Meet Your Favorite Authors!
The Teen Book Festival (TBF), hosted by the Rochester Institute of Technology, is a free event where students have the opportunity to meet some of their favorite authors in person and listen to them discuss their books and writing processes. We hope that TBF takes place in 2021; however, it is unclear whether or not this event will take place.
BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
Due to the restrictions on shared materials, Chittenango Middle School will not be participating in the 2020-2021 Battle of the Books program.
Battle of the Books (BOTB) is a regional competition in which students work in teams of 2-4 people to read and study a set of 8 novels over the course of several months. In order to prepare for the competitions, students meet regularly to answer practice trivia questions. Once students have mastered their set of books, they participate in building and regional competitions.
