A New Name and a New Look
Our blog is undergoing a name change and getting a new look. Mrs. Nelson and I have decided to rename our blog Cavaliers Read! in hopes of bringing more readers to our site. We came up with the name after a disappointing voter turnout for the SCYABA books. In case you don't know, SCYABA stands for South Carolina Young Adult Book Award. Each year, a committee (made up of South Carolina librarians) chooses 20 books as nominees for our young adult book award. Students across SC vote in February/March for their favorite. So, the award winner is actually chosen by students. In an effort to get more students on board with SCYABA, Mrs. Nelson and I changed the name (just for Dorman High School) to Cavaliers Read! We want our Cavalier students to stop by the library and check out (literally) these book award nominees and vote next year. We have a table set up with the nominees for the 2012-2013 school year right across from the circulation desk (where you check out your books). So, please stop by and check them out! We are hoping to add a twitter account soon to keep you informed of what is going on in the library. So keep an eye out for that!
