  • Is winter weather getting you down?  Tired of the cold and snow?  No worries, this is a GREAT time to challenge yourself to read some of the exceptional titles on the 2021 Intermediate and Middle School Nutmeg Nominee lists!  Voting for your favorite 2021 Nutmeg Nominees will take place at the beginning of April, so NOW is the time to get cozy with a book and READ!  Please note, to be eligible to vote, you have to have read at least one or more titles from either group of nominees.  You can check out a print copy from the LMC or check out the digital version within Destiny Discover. If you aren’t sure how to access the digital version, watch the video on the LMC page under “How to Videos.”   If you are checking out a print copy, please make sure that your teacher calls before coming down to the library. For more information on the 2021 Nutmeg Nominees, check out these two Padlets, which can be found on the LMC page, under Reading Suggestions.
