Nominations wanted 2016-2017!

One Book One Norris
Have you read any books recently that you loved and thought everyone would enjoy reading? If so, nominate that title for the One Book One Norris selection this school year.

What is One Book One Norris? This is to pick out a book that all Norris High School students and staff could read and enjoy. By selecting one title for everyone who wants to participate, we are able to open discussions about the book across grade levels and from students to staff, or share your general enjoyment of reading.

Nominations are being accepted now until September 23rd. A book will be chosen as our winner by the end of September and books should be available to checkout in early October. You can email nominations to or stop by the library and let Mrs. Huenemann or Mrs. TenHulzen know your pick.

Book Club

The selected title can also be discussed on our very own Norris Book Club Blog (which you are currently reading.) Want to join a book club but don't have the time to attend one in person? Then the Norris Book Club Blog is for you. We discuss the book on the book club site so you can enter comments at home or at school, any time of the day or night.

First Discussion

Eleanor says she and Park are too young for true love. Do you believe that? Do you think Eleanor believes that?

Is there such a thing as finding your true love while still in high school?

2014-2015 School Year

We are at the beginning of another school year! Summer certainly flew by for me. Last year, we didn't seem to have much interest in picking out a book for our book club, but we will try again this year!

The book club blog is meant to be an easy to participate and hopefully an enjoyable read with great discussion. You can post discussion questions to the blog or comment to other's questions at your convenience- whether this is at home or at school.

I will be taking nominations for the book that Norris Students and Staff should be reading from now until Labor Day. The final selection will be made in early September. If you have any suggestions for the book club book, stop by the library and let Mrs. Huenemann or Mrs. TenHulzen know, or send an email of the title/author to

Have a great start to the school year!

2013-2014 School Year

Good Afternoon Titans,

We would like to do a book club again this year with the Norris High School community and will be seeking nominations for the book soon. If there is a book you think many Norris students and staff should read, send Mrs. Huenemann an email at or stop by the library and tell us the nomination.

After a book is selected and copies arrive, we will discuss a tentative date to meet and discuss how the book blogging works.
