Library center of
student life at WHS
Book talks, author visits, place to work all part of mission
By Lexus Paulson, Meg Wolstenholm
and Hayley Durland
he library has always been a place to find
a good book, but today’s WHS library is
Providing a place for students to get wireless
access, do research, enjoy anime manga and more
is all part of the library’s mission.
Librarian Keri Smith is in her ninth year
leading the WHS library, and has been doing
book talks since the beginning. Each year Smith
starts by giving book talks to every freshman and
sophomore English class, along with most of the
ELL classes. When finished talking with those
students, she goes into various reading period
classes talking to all WHS students. She believes
that the book talks do have a positive impact.
“It gives students more ideas on what to read,
and find books that they are interested in,” Smith
said. “I also think it helps students that don’t like
to read enjoy reading a little more.”
WHS book checkouts have increased to over
40,000 books a year, and Smith said she reads
around 100 books a year herself, saying that a
few of hers from this summer were “Eleanor and
Park” by Rainbow Rowell, “Winger” by Andrew
Smith and “Fifth Wave” by Rick Yancey.
New features of the library include recently
completed summer hours, a new security system

at the door and new sections for Classics and
Fast Reads. In the Classic section, students can
find all the books that will meet requirements for
a classic read in some English classes. The Fast
Read section has books with around 200 pages
that students will be able to get through quickly.
Next month, popular author Neal
Schusterman, author of the “Everlost” series, will
be visiting WHS. Details will follow.

season with two big wins
Monday, defeating Mitchell
8-0 and 13-0.
Junior Regan Sheldon said
the team has high hopes for the
season and for tonight’s games
“I believe it has the potential
to be a good contest, but if we
work hard, then we should come
out on top,” Sheldon said.
Senior Michaela Mayer said
she also has high hopes for the
team this year.
“I think the team will be
good this season with a lot of
returning players,” Mayer said.
The Warriors are working
toward a third-consecutive
state championship this season
and will try hard to handle the
pressure associated with continuing their winning streak
into the new season.

Is technology really
out to get us all?
I’ve come to a conclusion, Warriors.
Our friends from the older generation—read that as
our parents—are technologically challenged.
Now, not all of them have a difficult time. But there are
a lot of those who are taking a ride on the struggle bus when
it comes to iPads, iPhones, and now, Chromebooks.
In my house, we recently got an iPad. Although I really
love using it, at first I was skeptical. “Magically,” my phone
was synced to the
Hear me. . . and soon all of
my texts and
via iPad. You
could say I was
a little… frustrated.
So was this the work of Apple trying to get back at me
for using a new Chromebook? Or were my parents just a
tad confused when they first set it up?
The world may never know, but I think I have a hunch
as to what might have happened. With technology getting
more and more advanced and complex each and every day,
I think everyone should be updated and synced with it as
well, so it might not be all bad.
Yes, Warriors, this means you’ll have to spend a little
bit more time with those that are a little slower with the
complicated technology. Try to think of it as a… bonding
experience? I’m not going to lie, though, I myself am still
getting used to the Chromebook. Converting from Mac to
Google is a weird transition.
You know what they say, though. “Once you go Mac,
you can never go back.”
Junior Jack Nachtigal hopes you always have a speedy internet connection.

Young adults tend

Co. reportedly prepares
to unveil its Gear smart
watch next month, it
could run into a barrier
among young users who
have grown up with timetelling cellphones in their
pockets instead of watches around their wrists.
“A lot of the millennial behavior is transitory,” said Jeffrey Cole,
director of the Center
for the Digital Future.
“But as people age, they
still are not wearing
watches, and we’ll begin
to find out next month
if that behavioral change

could help by improving features such as user
profiles and account
switching to help people
segregate work and
personal tasks. A smart
watch, for example,
could automatically stop
corporate email notifications during lunch or
while the device’s sensors
determine that the person is exercising.
