Hello Raiders!! The Friday update is a new, up and coming newsletter about all that’s happening in the library each week. The individuals in charge of this weekly update are Raquel, A.J, Evelyn, and Rachel. We are the third period library science team who gladly took on this task. We are here to inform all of you CIHS students about all of the special things the library program has to offer. . As our newsletter grows and our audience gets bigger, we will have special class attacks where we may possibly come right to you! The library has many amazing features, so stay tuned for future newsletters where we disclose them and let you in on all of our special little quirks. Check back next week for another update! Thank you for the read, have an amazing break Raiders!
