The Unquiet Library is pleased to announce the addition of Meebo to our Web 2.0 toolbox!  Although Meebo is sadly blocked on campus, you can Meebo our virtual reference desk after school hours from home if you need research assistance.   I have embedded a Meebo widget on our wiki home page so that you can see when either I, Mrs. Hamilton, or Mrs. Fleet is online to answer your reference questions after school.

We also have a Meebo widget embedded in the left sidebar of this blog for you as well!  We look forward to chatting up your reference questions!

Save the date: On June 19, Laurie will join them for their readergirlz LIVE! at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT.  Join the Readergirlz forum to particpate!

It’s the end of the school year, and readergirlz is celebrating that end-of-the-year tradition–prom night–and the risk-taking behavior associated with it. This month’s readergirlz author is Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Prom. Readergirlz asks the question, “Is prom a dream of a night, or is it a nightmare?”

Discuss the book with the readergirlz divas all through June on their group forum. On June 19, Laurie will join them for their readergirlz LIVE! at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT. Here are some questions to ponder from the Readergirlz chat guide:

  • What is the point of having a prom?
  • How much money should teens spend on their prom? Should schools or parents limit how much money is spent?
  • How is Carceras High like your school? How is it different?
  • Some people say prom is a teenager’s first chance to act like a real adult. Do you agree or disagree? Why?
  • Why do you think so many teens drink on prom night? What should be done about this?
  • What would your fantasy prom night be like?
  • Because of her work on the prom committee, Ashley changes the way she thinks of her future. What activities have changed the way you look at yourself?
  • How is Ashley’s happy ending different from Cinderella’s . . . or is it the same? Which is more realistic? Is there such a thing as “Prince Charming” or “happily ever after?”

You can also check out this month’s other recommended reads:

  • Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson
  • It’s Not About the Accentby Caridad Ferrer
  • Shadow Spinner by Susan Fletcher
  • A Step From Heaven by An Na
  • She’s So Money by Cherry Cheva

P. S. A special shout-out to diva Mitali Perkins whose middle-grade novel, Rickshaw Girl, is a finalist for the Jane Addams Honor Book for 2008!
