'Book Bombshells' for December '21


In Grady County Schools, we are able to pride ourselves in knowing that we are lucky enough to support our increasing literacy rate with our well-received Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading in Georgia (L4GA) Grant which you can read more about here.


With that in mind, the Red & Black recently reached out again to Media Specialist Mrs. Jenny Harrison, who shared some of this month's most checked-out titles from the Cairo High School Hancock Library.


Any student who is interested in these books can also check them out virtually as an E-book through Destiny Discover, which you can access through Clever. Please see Mrs. Harrison in the library for more information!

In case you missed our recent Book Bombshell reviews, check out the Red & Black's full books/literature section here, including recent book reviews and more recommendations from our media specialists!
