Have a great summer.....

Have a great summer!

This is my last post for the school year and what fun we've had this year in our Library. We especially enjoyed posting our video book reviews with Olive, our Library Cat!

Summer is a great time to read and for this last post I have collected a number of links to reading lists. I think you'll find something for everyone! It will remain on this blog until September.

So relax, kick back with a lemonade, and read, read read!

Hi Janet!
I would like to thank you for a wonderful year of ideas and information. I am in awe at your talent/wisdom/willingness to share and all that good "stuff". When I would check your site - I might find new twists on books that I had forgotten about. You are truly an amazing person. Thanks again. Hope you have a super, restful summer!
