If you can still lift your arms after all that climbing the day before then come join the Outing Club again in front of the library this Thursday from 3:30-4:30 for lawn games with Mr. Moore. Bocce, bean bag toss, and the basics of frisbee golf—we have it all folks, so don’t miss out!


St J Library news: You’ll be happy to hear that poetry has its own section. Be it Tupac, Dickenson, Ovid, or Rumi, all poetry can be found on the main floor near the circulation desk. Navigating through poetry has never been simpler. The current book displays in the library are these: Trending on BookTok: the hottest books from the freshest source. Thank you, Victoria Scherer, for the heads-up on this. Literary Fiction: 15 Years of the Booker Prize. The rotating Manga display for this month is SLAM DUNK.
