I'm a librarian moonlighting as a librarian. I'm currently working at two Michigan libraries: a small town public library, where I am now the director, and a K-12 public charter school. I write reviews of YA and juvenile fiction, and books set in Michigan and/or written by Michigan authors. I also occasionally discuss libraries and library science.
This week was filled with a wonderful amount of cataloging. A couple dozen new books found a new home in the library! I'd made a Scholastic order with our Scholastic Dollars earned at the book sales, but my buddy Lynette at the Superiorland Preview Center also stopped by the previous Wednesday with a box of great, new books for all ages.
Books by Marissa Moss
Marissa Moss is going to be the visiting Young Author next month.
These were both checked out within an hour of cataloging - and the time was only that long because I was holding one for a student. Rick Riordan's books are hot. (I reviewed The Lightning Thief, part of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, last summer.)
This is how I make the seventh grade literature teacher happy.
