Library News

Welcome to our Rustburg Middle School library! Reading can take you anywhere! There is so much excitement in the library this year! Books are flying off the shelves and into our student's hands! All books are checked out for one week, then they need to be renewed or returned. If a book has been "hanging around the house" a while encourage your son or daughter to return it to us! If you need to talk to myself or my wonderful assistant Ms. Moody feel free to call us at 434 332.6596 ext. 351 or email me at

If you are looking for more information about the books housed in our library feel free to follow the link below to search Destiny Discover.

The Book Fair Carnival during the Family Night 2023 was a huge success this year!

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us! We even had visitors from the  Elementary schools! Future RMS Students ready to read!


So many great things have been happening in the library this year. 2023 is moving along with tons of fun! Book Stacking, Book Fair, Book talks, a trip to Longwood Children's Book Festival, a READO Reward incentive with outdoor games and Kona Ice and even a  Crime Scene about a stolen painting on Halloween!

Coming Soon... a Santa crime scene with 6th grade, two tea parties with 7th grade, Virtual Reality with 8th grade, and even Book March Madness with everyone, stay tuned and hold on tight!

Mrs. Davis and some 8th grade readers enjoying the reward incentive!

First Quarter R.E.A.D.O Reading Incentive was a hit! Rolling pumpkins for reading? Yes at RMS!

Balancing Pumpkins? What else will they do for Mrs. Davis in the name of reading fun?

Read Across Rustburg was a huge success last week! Students and staff participated in a spirit week by dressing up as twins, confusing patterns, to represent a decade and in school colors!. They also all heard a book in the library called This Way Charlie by Caron Levis and Charles Santoso. The book is a great story about an animal rescue and rehabilitation center in Oklahoma. It was the start of a community service project for our school, we are collecting pet items  for the Friends of Campbell County! It is such a worthy cause, and we are off to a great start. We will collect pet supplies for the whole month of March we welcome community donations as well. (see the list below)

Ms. Harvell and Mrs. Sugden are very pattern confused!!!


On Friday, March 18th, RMS celebrated our 3rd READO Book Challenge. Students were challenged to read Award Winning Books from many different categories, and read they did!  179 students walked on the Red Carpet and participated in "award themed" activities. So much fun was had by students and adults, that they were asking for the next READO  Challenge Sheets!

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this possible for our students. Mandy Pugh, Elizabeth Moody, Rae Henderson, Fallon Wright, Elizabeth Knowles, Brandy Hall, Tracy Scott, Mrs. Slusher, Ms. Hayek, Rustburg and Concord Elementary, (for letting us borrow beanbag chairs) Rustburg Public Library, the art students, and all the students who read to get there! Our last READO challege begins Tuesday, March 22nd! Happy Reading everyone!
