The libraries of the Acalanes Union High School District and the Lamorinda community libraries of Contra Costa County have teamed up again to offer “One Community, One Book” to local teens.
This year we have chosen Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone. This is a YA story about a girl in a northern California high school who has OCD and finds solace and healing through a "Poet's Corner" writing group she finds at her school. So our themes this year are "mental health" & "writing for healing" .
As usual, we are collaborating with the County Libraries of Moraga, Orinda, Lafayette as well as our sister schools Miramonte, Acalanes and LasLomas. The Wellness Center will be involved in the program planning and Leadership class and AP Psychology classes are also on board. We also want to encourage the community to read along with us!
Monday, February 24: Free Books will be available from school libraries & local Lamorinda community libraries
March 1st - 30th: Programs at the school library, county library and wellness center will be during school and in the evenings.
