Had an assembly day today and the kids that choose to may stay in the library. So with 160 students we were packed and buzzing! Lots of talking, card playing and even some students working on homework with the extra time. Checked out two class sets of To Kill a Mockingbird and one set of Algebra 2 Units 7-13. Had quite a few individual students checking in books today and a few that checked out. Got the new books on the rack, Mrs. H made a new sign for the rack and put it nearer the front where the kids can see them easily. An aide putting books away had the shelf supports give way! They are old plastic and I brought him over some of the newer metal supports to replace them with. The Buzz on the new books today: Impossible - the Scarborough women have a curse laid on them to finish three impossible tasks or to go mad when their first child is born, I can hear the song now! Graceling - a people born with 'grace' skills, and Katsa's is gifted with the 'grace' of killing; Confessions of a Serial Kisser - nuff said! War Is... soldiers, survivors and storytellers talk about war; I'll Pass for Your Comrade - women soldiers in the Civil War; Dewey - a kitten dumped into the book return bin becomes a wonderful library cat - shelve this kitty at 636.809.
