Is there a librarian in the house?

Monday, April 11th, 2011

This week is National Library Week! Do you have  a favorite library memory or did a librarian change your life? We’d love to hear about it!  Here are a few of our favorite books about libraries and librarians:

The story of RoseAleta Laurell who arrived in Lockheart, Texas to be the head of the Dr. Eugene Clark Library. The library was outdated so she spent a week on the library roof to raise money and interest in the library.
A first-grade girl who does not like to read stubbornly resists her school librarian’s efforts to convince her to love books until she finds one that might change her mind.
Melvin discovers that the public library is the place where he can find just about anything–including three librarians who help in his quest for knowledge.
The school lunch lady, a secret crime fighter, sets out to stop a group of librarians bent on destroying a shipment of video games, while a group of students known as the Breakfast Bunch provides back-up.
When the children go back to school, the animals on the farm are bored, so they go into the library in town trying to find something to do.
A lion starts visiting the local library but runs into trouble as he tries to both obey the rules and help his librarian friend.

When Lola’s favorite book is not on the library’s shelf, her older brother, Charlie, tries to find another book she will enjoy.

Jack and Annie rocked!
