"This is so awesome!"

I overheard a student say this today when his class came for their first library visit of the school year. The library opened for checkouts this week and, boy! Marshall Lane students are really enthusiastic about checking out books! They swarmed the library at morning and lunch recesses and checked out all the Star Wars books and all the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books plus loads of other books, magazines, and audiobooks. Another student told me that she loves the library. It makes me happy to see the kids get so excited about books!

I got a big surprise today. My sister came all the way from Tennessee to visit me for my birthday! Mr. Richards was in on it and he brought her to the library today where I put them to work shelving books. It was a great surprise! I also enjoyed a birthday song from Mrs. Hunt's class. Good times!

ETA: I forgot say that I also learned from a student that a fifth volume in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid is due out soon. In fact, it will come out on November 9th! Here is a link to the website where you can read more about the author, see the new book cover, play the 'Cheese Touch' game, and wimp yourself!
