Books Reading BOOKS & READING
Are your students clamoring to read the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book? If they are waiting to get their hands on a copy, or if they have already read the entire series, keep them happily reading with similar titles on our If You Like Diary of a Wimpy Kid book list.
November is National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. Encourage your students to visit the KidLinks History subject guide for access to databases including the American Indian Experience and Scholastic's Trueflix. These informative resources include primary documents and videos to help students investigate people, places and history. All students need is a library card to access any of our library databases for free, 24/7!

National History Day logo


    Minnesota's Metro Regional Events begin as early as March 11, with the last one taking place on March 25. Who will go on to the State History Day contest on May 3? Will anyone go on to the National History Day contest from June 15-19 in Washington, D.C.? Spectators are welcome at all events.

    Sign up to be a History Day judge and you'll help young people develop their leadership and educational skills. "History Day judges review entries in their preferred category, give students feedback and select which projects advance from the regional to the state and national events. The time commitment can be as little as one five-hour event or extend to multiple competitions in different venues; you can even judge websites and papers at home."

    Explore this year's History Day theme Rights and Responsibilities in History in Do Your Homework: History Day Projects subject guide. Find links to project instructions, primary source resources, websites vetted by HCL librarians, and databases purchased by Hennepin County Library. Online resources are available 24/7!
