Got to take our Team Firestar to the Battle of the Books over at Houck Middle School this afternoon. They did a great job, but came 2 points short of placing! A valiant try, but maybe next year! Worked on copy status with the science books today. Traded our new LIghtning Thief books for some from other libraries. Watched the boy half of the 'birds and bees' talk today. Found 7 books at $20.47 apiece that were still checked out to students who were now in high school. A great day for a battle, and the kids all had a great time. Eight different schools with about 5 kids apiece! They all got snacks afterwards and a book to take home! A great time was had by all!
