    MEDIA CENTER NEWS 

    GENRE PROJECT

     

     

     

     

    fantasy shelves

    Last year we began to separate, relabel and arrange our fiction by genre. Scary Books ,  Fantasy and Mystery sections are now complete, as well as a small Animal Fiction section. Next up is Historical Fiction.  We'll continue to add other genres this year.  This has already begun to help students locate the books they want to read without frustration or confusion. Media Assistants will help with this process during their Exploratory, but we could use additional volunteers to help with this process.  Please email Mrs. Brown at brownj@wataugaschools.org  if you are able to help.
