Tales from behind the book case

The library has been transformed!  An amazing bunch of Book Fair elves showed up this morning to move boxes, push around book cases, and put up table displays.  Now the library looks like a book store:

I browsed around the fair and pulled some books for the library.  I'm happy to report there are lots of new and exciting titles in stock.  Most notably is the newest in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, The Third Wheel.  Other new titles include Rick Riordan's The Mark of Athena, Lemony Snicket's Who Could That Be at This Hour? and Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers, the first Captain Underpants book in a number of years.

Once again, I've set up my secret hidey hole behind the bookcases and I'll be cataloging all these new books so they'll be ready for check out after the fair.

The fair opens for business this Friday after school and will run all next week.  There will be a family event on December 5th, and we may have a special visitor!  Come and check it out!

Book Fair and other arrivals.

I arrived at work this morning and found that the Book Fair had already been delivered, as if the Scholastic fairies had arrived during the night.

And as is par for the course, I also received books from three different orders.

I'll be getting even more books directly from the book fair so by the time the book fair is over, the library will have lots of new books for your reading enjoyment.  Here's a teaser:

I'm very excited about many of these titles!  And I'm very eager to see what Scholastic has sent us.  And of course, I'll need to remove some of those old books that keep surfacing to make room for these wonderful new ones.  

The Scholastic book fair will be open for business starting this Friday afternoon and running all next week.  Come by and support you local elementary school library!
