The Hunger Games

January 23, 2015

By Suzanne Collins

Years before the start of the series, the thirteen districts attempted to start a revolution against the Capitol. The Capitol

won, District 13 was destroyed and, as punishment, an annual televised death match called The Hunger Games was created by the Capitol. Two participants, one male and one female, known as tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen randomly in a "reaping" from each district. Children may volunteer as a tribute instead of selection by ballot. They are taken to an arena and fight until only one is left alive.

Harry Potter and the Soccerer's Stone

January 21, 2015

By J.K. Rowling

One day just before his eleventh birthday, an owl tries to deliver a mysterious

letter—the first of a sequence of events that end in Harry meeting a giant man named Hagrid. Hagrid explains Harry's history to him: When he was a baby, the Dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, attacked and killed his parents in an attempt to kill Harry; but the only mark on Harry was a mysterious lightning-bolt scar on his forehead.

The Wilson Library is a hub of student activity at Wilson High School. Librarians help students develop their capacity to locate, evaluate, and apply information. Classes frequently visit the library to conduct research or seek out materials for pleasure reading. Students also use the library for individual and group study. The library’s mission is to train excellent student researchers, provide high-quality library services, and develop collections that support academics and independent reading at Wilson.

 

Throughout the year, the library hosts special events and programs. Recent activities have included visiting authors, an edible book festival, high tech origami, a trivia hunt, and a book swap.
