Novels Available for Check-Out

Below is a link to a list of novels housed at the EY office.  The spreadsheet contains the title of the novel, the author, the number of copies available, the number of pages contained in the novel, the genre, a link to a book summary or trailer so that you can see what the novel is about, and the approximate F & P level.  Titles that are blue have a link to a google doc of discussion questions/activities.  Katie will be working on these throughout the year, so check back often.

If/when you decide you would like to check out a set of one of these novels, please e-mail Katie Sindt, who will then put your name in the “checked-out by” section of the spreadsheet and the date the novels are due back.  Please try to give Katie about a week’s notice to get you the novels.
