Media Center services

Gold Stars: If you enjoy one of the Media Center books you have read, you are encouraged to add a GOLD Star to the inside book cover. (GOLD Stars are provided for you.)  Up to 5 stars per book can be accumulated to let other high school readers know that this particular book is highly recommended by their peers.
