Library Halloween Specials


October 27, 2017--It’s close to midnight, and something's lurking in the dark…

Feel like getting into the Halloween Spirit?  Come to the library to check out some haunting, chilling, spooky non-fiction. You can find these in the 130s section.

Diwali:  October 19, 2017 

If Halloween is creeping you out, check out something that will lighten your mood: Diwali, the festival of lights! 

Come to the library and see what kind of culturally rich works ISD Library has to offer to our school community. Call# E 394.265 PET


Day of the Dead, Nov. 2nd, 2017

Don’t mistake Day of the Dead for black magic or simple spookiness. "Syncretism" is the merging of different cultures, religions, and schools of thought. It often results in unique and colorful celebrations like Day of the Dead, a mixture Catholic and indigenous religious traditions.  The ISD library has a lot of information if you'd like to learn more!

Click here for a neat video of a recent Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico City, and I suggest checking out this book: Pablo Remembers: The Fiesta of the Day of the Dead by George Ancona. Call #:  E 393.9 ANC


Formation of the UN: October 24th, 1945

ISD students will find this charter useful in the formation of their UN resolutions and their personal research in preparation for an upcoming MUN conference.  

For more interesting reading resources--and all 19 chapters of the UN Charter--please see:  http://www.un.org/en/charter-united-nations/.
