Once again we are holding an open house to give the staff and student 
body a chance to see all of our new books on display before they are 
circulated. Once again I am blown away by the reaction. We are playing 
soft music in the background. The junior class brought in some samples 
of their candle tarts so it smells like pumpkin spice. I have cookies 
and cobbler for the staff in the back. Teachers are sending a few 
students at at time and then coming in during their lunch and planning 
periods. It is a flurry of excitement as everyone brings books up and 
place holds on them for Monday checkout. It has been a day of organized 
chaos but I've talked to so many people about books. I'm also surprised 
at some of the books creating interest. Everyone is willing to work with 
me for a day and not send students for anything but computer work or to 
see the new books. If you've not done this before it is great PR and you 
get to see another side of students and staff. Now I just want to go 
home and read for the entire weekend!!
