Creative Writing Club

Do you like to write? Join us write now! During each club meeting, students will learn and practice creative writing skills which they can practice in a relaxed and social atmosphere. The club is both fun and informative and gives writers an opportunity to work on their craft and share their work with peers. Options for publishing work will be discussed. 

3 - 4 pm library conference room

Dates are coming soon! 


League of Robotic Panthers

What's the future of learning? FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams are finding the answers with this year's World Class Challenge.  Born into a Digital Age, where information gathering is literally at their fingertips, students unleash new ways to gain knowledge and skills through research and robots. This is a parent-led organization.  We will update this page with information as it is available.



dates will be added soon!  Informational meeting on Tuesday, August 29th 

The library is looking for a dedicated group of readers to serve on our advisory and selection board for the 2017-2018 Teen Advisory Group (TAG) list.  This activity also qualifies as Community Service based on a model developed by the Johnson County Library.  For each book read, you may earn 2 hours of service and for each meeting you attend you will earn 1 hour. 

As a reader selector, you have the opportunity to help select books for the 2018-2019 Trendy Twelve List.  The books are student-selected to provide quality reading for Prairie Star Middle School students and appeal to a wide variety of tastes and interests.  Students from other Blue Valley middle schools are also participating.  The Trendy Twelve is for students in the sixth through eighth grades. We meet as a TAG group once a month from September - February to discuss the books we’ve been reading and compare notes! This is not a book club per se.  You are reading independently from a list of 20-25 titles.  (The number varies slightly each year based on a list selected by BV Library Media Specialists). Each member is responsible for reading each of the  titles on our list.  There is no specific order in which you have to read the books, but all books must be read by the end of spring break.

Additionally, TAG members serve in an advisory capacity for library programming and assist with book fairs and library promotions as needed. Your ideas and suggestions are key to providing an engaging, student-centered media center!
