Wondering What to do with those Audiobooks Lying Around?
Wondering what to do with those audiobooks lying around? We can find a use for them! As a high school English department, we’ve been focusing the last few years on helping students find books that they will enjoy reading even if they wouldn’t otherwise be a part of our classroom curriculum. We’ve seen more and more students find genres and authors that they click with and it’s exciting! We’re trying to build our audiobook library for those students who enjoy listening to books as they read along. If anyone has any audiobooks they would like to donate to the English department, please leave them in the elementary or high school office for Ms. Nersesian. We appreciate your help and so do our students!
