New books that we got in! Finished off checking in the boxes from Friday. Processed in five magazines for the library and one for a teacher. Started to strip and cover the paperback books. Redid my outside the door bulletin board - snowman wrapping paper with '220 New books just in time for winter break check outs!'. Took down all the Nanowrimo stuff and packed the posters away. Put a new poster up by the front. Had to check out three kids who were withdrawing all at the end of the day. Had a student come to check out a psychology book. She didn't have a card, so I said no. But she only needs it for one period and she'll bring it right back. I say no. Then she comes with a 'friend' who has a card and wants to check out the book, I say no. There's too many problems with that. She argues that 'how do I know that this other girl doesn't want the book?' - I wanted to say 'do I look stupid? but instead I tell her to just go back to class and tell the teacher she can't check out a book since she didn't bring her ID today. She and the other girl leave (I was in the back eating lunch) so I ask Mrs. M later, did you check out a psych book? Why yes she did, just last period to a girl with a card. *sigh* Oh well.
