This Friday we had our first "Library Class" with our favorite librarian: Ms. Jan Bailey. The kids got to go to the library and learn a little about the library's history and purpose in the community. The kids then participated in a "library scavenger-hunt" that helped them become a little more accustomed to the layout of the library and all the amazing books the library holds!
The boys used the card catalog, search for books alphabetically, and learned what the "call numbers" meant on the outside of the books. It was a successful first library class! My favorite reaction from the kids was, "Wow, that was WAY more fun than I thought it was going to be!" Yes, that is right, the library can be FUN!
