The highlight of the week was the Boundless Book-a-thon event.  Local authors and their books were showcased at the event.   Hispanic, Native American and New Mexican cultures were represented by the books, which were available for purchase at the authors’ table.  Tea, treats, raffles and a 25% discount off books and games added to the festive nature of the reception. 

The Nook HD and HD+ were showcased with a new app. called Nearpod which allows teachers  to create lesson plans, show them on NOOK devices, control the presentation via the teacher app/NOOK and receive results from quizzes.
