The Library Pages by Carlene Morton, Illustrated by Valeria Docampo

When you come into the library and can find what you're looking for, that's because a library page has put it where it belongs. Today's blog is dedicated to library pages everywhere, but especially to my "girls" at LSNC, a great group who work hard and help me out when I need it. Thanks ladies!

Lexile:    Not Rated
Pages:    32
Ages:     4-8

Mrs. Heath is a librarian on leave from Happyland Elementary School. One day, she goes to the mailbox and discovers a package has been delivered. It's from her students with a letter explaining that the substitute librarian has made them library pages and they have made a movie to show her what they had been doing.

From Bert the fiction shelver putting all of the skinny books together and all of the fat books together, to the Carlos Color Code (that Dewey guy just made things too complicated!) things are looking worse and worse and Mrs. Heath is despairing that she'll never straighten things out when she returns. But is the situation really as it appears to be?

I like this book as it gives parents a chance to talk to their children about how a library is put together a certain way so that they can find things and maybe even discuss library etiquette. And it does it in a fun way!

Come to the library today and get your copy of The Library Pages and find out what Mrs. Heath is facing on her return. Or, click here to reserve a copy for delivery to your favorite branch of the Lake County Public Library.

Thanks again, ladies!

Peace, Love, and Reading,
Miss Laurie
