LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER NEWS
The library and Mrs. Alkalay's Expository Writing class collaborated to create posters for the library using CANVA. After reading a book of their choice, the students wrote a book review. A lesson in using CANVA was conducted by Mrs. Panchuk last Thursday. The students then used their creativity in designing the poster. Students responded positively to the lesson and in a followup survey comments such as "I like how I incorporated an artistic element into my recommendation with my written element and got to have fun while doing it" and "I thought I gave good reasons as to why to read my book and I used good colors to make it stand out so people will see it and read it."
Don't forget to check out the library website to borrow digital books through the SORA app, read digital magazines or browse the library catalog.

MHS THEATRE SOCIETY PRESENTS...
The Curious Savage by John Patrick, NOVEMBER 15th - 17th
(The Curious Savage is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.)
Following her husband’s death, Ethel Savage inherited $10 million. Ethel’s goal is to use the family fortune to fulfill strangers’ ill-advised dreams. Her stepchildren’s goal is to reclaim the Savage legacy. In their efforts to bring Ethel to her senses, the Savage children have her committed to a sanitorium: The Cloisters. Among the Cloisters’ residents, Mrs. Savage discovers a level of authenticity she found lacking in the outside world. Commit yourself to The Curious Savage: a story of greed, loyalty, and those who challenge traditional conventions.
Please note that this show is double-cast meaning there are two sets of actors performing. One group will perform Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. The other group will perform Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. If you are hoping to see a particular actor, please double check when they will perform. The list can be found here.
