Charles A. Sprague Collection

It's always a great day in the library! Checked in and out a lot of individual students today. Also moved in the new Physical Science with Earth Science books to their shelf. Had some questions from parents as they received notices for overdue books. Asking if they'd been brought in, and if they could then get their report cards. Worked with a teacher on novels, processed magazines, repaired books. Sent an email to our bookkeeper on the fined books that were brought in, explaining how one book was returned and it wasn't the right book, but may have been. Contacted LMSS on the circulation report to see if we can pull up the call numbers, and they replied that we used to be able to weave that information in, but it won't do it any longer. Our sub pulled books again today and we discussed several books. I found that she had misunderstood one book, but she has done a marvelous job working in the LCI list and pulling carts of books. Another book she found was from our Charles A. Sprague collection that had been shelved with our regular collection. So I returned it to the collection shelves by the front door. I believe that the collection is from his personal library and is a great historical piece for our school.
