Ms. Bervoets, Ms. Hutchinson, and I are so excited to be back on campus for another semester here at Overton! We have a lot of exciting news to share.
New Year, New Library
Our new library will be opening in March when we get back from spring break! We are so excited. The new space will be much larger to make room for all of your favorite library resources and activities, and it will have a classroom for teaching with a garage door, charging lockers for students to charge their devices, three collaboration rooms where students can work on group projects, a much larger cyber café area, and so much more. Check out the slideshow to see the progress so far. These pictures were taken from the walkway that goes over to the Engineering academy, and you can see the library windows being constructed in addition to the progress on the main library area. If you'd like to hear more about what the new library will be like, stop by and talk to one of us! We can show you a map and tell you all sorts of fun details.
Food for Fines
Nashville Public Library is doing a program called "Food for Fines" right now! This is an amazing opportunity to get your public library fines completely removed. All you have to do is bring nonperishable food items (cereal, peanut butter, canned items, pasta) to the Overton library. For each item you bring, you'll get $1 removed from your fines. Easy peasy! (Note: Nashville Public Library will not accept anything expired, open packages, repackaged items, or glass containers.) This is going on from now until January 22nd - so bring us those food items and get a clean slate for the new year!
New Library After School Hours
Great news! The library will now have extended hours after school two days each week. We'll be open until 4:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so you can stay and work on projects, use the computers, or check out books and read. Ask your librarians for details!
I think that's all the news for today! Stay tuned to our blog to keep up with the latest information about the library. We'll post pictures, information about contests, and other cool stories here.
We'll see you in the library!
Until next time,
