St. John's Prep 2013 NHS members named St. John's Prep is pleased to announce Ellen Arnold, soph- omore, daughter of John and Margaret Arnold of Kimball, as a new member of the National Honor Society, Virgil Michel Chapter. The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier orga- nization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with mem- bership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Today, it is estimated that more than one mil- lion students annually participate in activities of NHS and its mid- die level counterpart, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but also chal- Ellen Arnold, daughter of John and Margaret Arnold of Kimball named to National Honor Society at St. John's Prep.

Both NHS and NJHS were founded by and are programs of the National Associa- tion of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Volunteers to give On April 23, 2013, 25,000 vol- unteers will give away half a mil- lion free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities across the country. The free book giveaway is part of World Book Night U.S. (WBN), an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, spe- cially primed paperbacks to light or nonreaders across America on one day. Great River Regional Library (GRRL) has recruited more than 50 volunteers who will share books at different locations across Central Minnesota such as parks, coffee shops and fitness centers. Each volunteer will receive 20 copies of one book to give away. The book will be selected from 30 titles provided by WBN to sat- isfy a variety of interests. It is hoped that when volumeers give the same book within a commu- nity, readers will share their reac- tions and become more involved in books and reading. Providing people with materials and ser- vices to support lifelong learning and personal enrichment is a goal within the library's strategic plan. WBN is also celebrated April 23 in Germany, the U.K. and Ireland. April 23 is the date of the UNESCO International Day of the Book, the birthday of William Shakespeare, and the date of death for both Shakespeare and Miguel de Cer- vantes, author of "Don Quixote," considered to be the first modern European novel. Bestselling authors Ann Patch- ett and James Patterson are hon- orary chair-people for WBN. Pat- terson said: "In my experience, when people like what they are doing, they do more of it. This is the genius of World Book Night it gets people reading by connect- ing them with amazing, enjoyable books. I'm honored to be a part of it." The books were chosen by an independent panel of booksell- ers and librarians. The free WBN editions are not available else- where, but standard editions of the selected books are available through all GRRL locations. The 30 World Book Night U.S. titles for 2013, alphabetical by author, are: The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood City of Thieves, David Benioff Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury MyAntonia, Willa Cather Girl with a Pearl Earring, Tracy Chevalier The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros away 500,000 books April 23 La Casa en Mango Street, San- Montana Sky, Nora Roberts dra Cisneros; translated by Elena LookAgain, Lisa Scottoline Poniatowska Me Talk Pretty One Day, David The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho Sedaris ElAlquimista, Paulo Coelho The No. I Ladies' Detective The Language of Flowers, Van- Agency, Alexander McCall Smith essa Diffenbaugh Glaciers, Alexis M.
