Library

Welcome to the Milne Library of The Derryfield School - both a traditional, physical library with well over 19,000 volumes, DVDs, videos, and audiobooks on the shelves, and a "cybrary," the website that is available day and night, weekdays and weekends, to help you surf your way to useful resources. Check out our catalog, various subscription databases, and recommended links. Come in and browse around!
Middle School Lunch Bunch
Please come to Lunch Bunch Monday, May 5. Ms. Russell and Mr. Blaisdell will lead our discussion of Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. Here' a quick blurb:

Doomed to - or blessed with - eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.
 
We'll meet in M16 during lunch, so remember to bring your lunch! RSVP to Mrs. Stevenson so we're sure to have enough goodies to share!

To Read Books is...
by Cecilia Templeton '17

To travel far and wide
And see impossible tasks become possible
With the help of magic and determination
To open your mind
And learn new things
To gain new powers
And become a better person
To meet all kinds of people
And find lifelong friends
To watch friendship conquer evil
And find that love is more powerful than anything
To go on an adventure
And stand an inch from death
To face your deepest fears
And overcome them
To find out more about yourself
And understand more about others
To destroy any obstacles that get in your way
And always have a clever solution
To escape from problems in reality
And immerse yourself in more terrible troubles
