Life Goes On in High School Libraryland

The first month of school had passed and we were still literally up to our elbows in textbook boxes, with more coming in the door. I think we need to have a category on the annual library survey in this state to indicate how many of us have to process, store, check out and retrieve textbooks in our CA school libraries. I also want questions for how much space it takes up and how much time it keeps the library closed each year. Oh well, my rant is over.

We are finally open for regular hours and service, and all of the 9th grade English classes have completed the library orientation. Life feels normal now in the library.
