Library Media Center

Last Updated: 6/3/2020 3:34 PM


The Library Media Center (LMC) is located at the heart of our building.  We believe that developing independent, lifelong learners is one the most important things we can do at South Oldham High School.  We view it as a learning lab and invite all school staff, students and parent and community members to use our facility, working with us for excellence in student learning. 

SOHS Summer Reading Invitation

The English Department invites students from all grade levels to select a book of their choice to complete the summer reading assignment this year.

Please select a book that is appropriate for high school. You should not have read this book before, either in class or independently. You can choose fiction or nonfiction novels, graphic novels, or plays. Essay and short story collections are also okay.

Please complete the book prior to the first day of school. Your English teacher will ask you to write a reflection on your summer reading selection in the beginning of the school year.
