Worked on some repairs today, processed in six magazines for the library and one for teachers. Checked out Of Mice and Men. Packed up West's Fahrenheit 451 they had lent since we won't be using them after all and a few other books of theirs that we had as well. Worked some more on the Conceptual Physics books and contacted the publisher to see if they had a high school version. Contacted another rep to see about ordering the Realidades 3 books to go with our 1 and 2 books. Mrs. H had to leave at 2 for an appointment so I kept the library open until my time and was very busy. My sad part of the day was declaring 'lost' the books that were still checked out to two students, one who has already left this world and one that is holding on by the slimmest threads. We didn't feel comfortable asking the families at this time to return books, so by declaring them lost, they are still in the system, but the families won't be billed for anything inadvertently. We talked with our bookkeeper and will ask the counselors to advise us on what to do.
