It’s March.


But what’s really nice is the opportunity to get free food.

Because March…is reading month.

And the OHS library has some prizes for our literary-inclined students.

During the week of March 5-9, anyone who checks out a book will be able to pick out a cookie coupon for either Dusty’s Cellar or Great Harvest. When books are returned (deadline is two weeks later) students receive a coupon for a slice of pie from Grand Traverse, and if you tell the librarians about the book you will also obtain a coupon for a scoop of ice cream at Culver’s.

Hopefully, one of your classes will get in on the action. Kelly Joldersma and Sandy Fields (LMC) agree that reading month is an opportunity for teachers to take the time out of their busy schedules and stop in for some DEAR.

“We think that everybody should have a drop everything and read time in their classroom and invite the librarians too, so we can spend time reading,” Fields said.

If you need help choosing a book, your librarians have recommended a few.

    • Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng


  • The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe
  • Absent by Katie Williams (an Okemos grad)


  • The Space Between Trees also by Katie Williams
  • Yiayia and Papou by Christine Skoutelas (Resource)

It’s not only students welcomed to the library this month.

“We invite the teachers and the staff to come in and join the fun. They can have cookies too,” Fields said.
