Fair Is Fair!

It always excites me how thoroughly our school community embraces books. As a librarian I value greatly the resources held in common, over time, for the benefit of a community (resources such as libraries). Then along come the annual PTO new and used book sales and -- viola! -- everyone is thrilled to browse through great choices and take home books for their personal bookshelves. Books to borrow, books to own, books to share, books to plan to read "someday..." Can't beat having books, one way or another. The pleasure with which students see books in the book fair is palpable. More than once during the fair students bought books they had already read but simply wanted to own -- a tribute to the lasting appreciation of a good story... Hooray.
