The NNHS Library Learning Commons (LLC) coordinates a number of programs and contests at Newton North that are designed to encourage independent reading. This month they are participating in a national promotion called March Madness concurrent with the NCAA basketball tournament. From March 1-March 7, students are able to vote for 8 out of 16 books at this website: www.marchbookmadness.weebly.com. Each week the field of books will get narrowed down (just like the March Madness tournament) until April 5, when the winner will be announced. The LLC will hold a contest in conjunction with the vote. Students will have until March 7 to pick the book that they think will win March Madness. If they pick the correct book they will be entered into a contest to win a gift certificate.
