Found a book a student was looking for and she asked how I did it. I said I was magical. She said "ALL librarians are magical!" I agree.

FaceBook Challenge Update
We are less than 50 "likes" away from our short-term goal of 500 "likes" by Winter Break! The challenge ends on November 21.
First Grade Research Centers Update
Finishing touches are being added to the 1st grade research LibGuide (e.g., selected documents are being translated into Spanish). Check back late next week for the final version.
ABC dice games and feathers for quill pens are back ordered and will be sent to campuses as soon as they are received.
Action Required: Consult the LibGuide for modifications that will make the cup & ball toy and buzz saw/whirligig easier for first graders to use.
