More Harry Potter!

The library certainly had a copy of all the Harry Potter books at one point, but honestly, most of them are in bad shape. Extensive damage from over use really. Last year I replaced copies of books 4, 5, 6, and 7 because they were literally falling apart. In the last two months though the first three books have been in great demand and I actually had to discard all of them. The demand had been so high that I realized one copy of each of the first three books wasn't going to cut it, so I got 3 copies of each! Can't wait to put them into circulation this week.

Some Nice Computer Books for the Library

The library just got some great new books for the library.

I've really been making a push to get some interesting non-fiction titles in the library, and I'm hoping that these will be a great addition. There are a number of kids interested in Scratch, and I have had more than one student ask me about youtube videos.

I really like the youtube book, it was less about using youtube, and more about how to properly plan and execute a video. Very well done.

Doing new course in Mobile Computing

I just found a great course on Mobile computing and creating apps called "TrinityX: T007x Mobile Computing with App Inventor - CS Principles". 
It looks great! I am one week late starting, but hopefully I will catch up! There is even a section 
for making a walking tour based on GPS locations, something I have always wanted 
to do.

Outside Gym and Snow Forts

On Friday of last week and Monday of this week we had gym outside, in the fresh snow on Monday. It was fun, and we spent some time digging snow forts and snow tunnels.
