Librarian Comes to the Library!

Julia Mayo, from the Newfoundland Public Library, was at school today giving a great presentation to the Grade 5 students about different genres of literature. She brought some choice books for students to look at, as well as giving a great talk on "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's library" which sounds great.
She also spoke about how easy the elibrary is to use too! Which it is, I use it all the time.

Inner Beauty, Beyonce Style

Many of the elementary classes are reading Roald Dahl's "The Twits" when they come to visit the library. We just started with a class last week and had reached the section where he is describing how Mrs. Twit is incredibly ugly, but she wasn't born that way.

The moment we finished, one girl in Grade 4 exclaimed, "I'm going to keep thinking good thoughts until I look like Beyonce!"

This weeks reads...

Right now I am reading two books to the classes that visit the library.

Pancakes for Breakfast, by Tomie DePaola, is a simple easy to read book, because it has no words! Well, not totally. The only real words in the book are a recipe for pancakes. The rest of the book can just be read by looking at the pictures.

For some of the older classes we are reading:

which is a wonderful disgusting book about Mr. and Mrs. Twit, and the terrible things they do to each other. Or that they do to monkeys. Or birds. Or little boys. Really anyone. With lots of bizarre words made up by Roald Dahl and some strange scenarios, it has been a great read-a-loud so far.

New Books!

New books ready to enter the library system!

Finally got most of the library things up and running, though there is still lots of computer things to do. And as soon as I print the labels for these books I can put all 80 of them on the shelves for kids to read. There are roughly 15 Rainbow Magic, another 15 Geronimo Stilton, a bunch of graphic novels, and another bunch of historical fiction. Should be great!
