Was it the Loch Mess Monster?
A pack of wolves?
No, just a normal afternoon in the library.
This year’s first book order:
- 11 boxes
- 330 books
- $4480.28 of the budget
- Arrived yesterday
The second grade has been doing cut-and-paste “book shelving” worksheets.
I think I might have discovered one of the culprits behind my real life messy shelves.
So I got this text from a friend tonight that actually began, “Help! library emergency!”
All is well: problem solved, books located, third grader relieved.
Librarians – superheroes for the information age?
“I want to return this book. Where do I put it?”
Usually asked while standing right where I took this picture.
I had a lot of homework this weekend.
Muchos, muchos papers to grade.
Of course, I don’t actually assign homework in the library.
I believe there’s something called irony present in there somewhere.
I got quite a few variations of this answer:
We do not actually teach poultry farming in the library. The students are referring to this:
Apparently even meleagris gallopavo feels the need to shush in the library.
Index card left in the library. It must have been used as a bookmark, but no name. Too bad . . . it’s a lot of work for a bookmark.
One of my students brought the new Rick Riordan The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, Book 3) book to me and said it was missing pages. Occasionally we will get a defective book. We’ve had one printed upside down inside its hardback cover and one that had the entirely wrong cover (different title) on it. This one jumped from page 230 to 358 or something like that. I had to call our book jobber to send a replacement, but look where the story abruptly stopped.
That’s just mean.
