Hello Bookworms!

Well, only one week and one day left of school!  The library is closed and we have counted all the books.  There are still a few out, and some that have just disappeared off the shelves.  If you know where any of these are please, please, please bring them back to the library or drop them into the office.  I'm not worried about where they have been - I just want the books back.  Pleeeeeeease! I'm really hoping and saying some prayers that we get every last one back onto the shelves by the end of the term.

Congratulations to Room 11 for winning the prize for being the first class to get all of its books back to the library.  Well done, Room 11 and Miss Ryan. 

And a HUGE THANK  YOU to our Year 6 Student Librarians for all your hard work this year.  You have made my job a whole lot easier, and have been a great bunch to work with - hardworking, enthusiastic and fun! Thank you!  I wish you all the very, very best as you go on to Year 7.  Keep reading!
Watch out for some new stuff coming on the library blog soon...  This will help you to find the books you'll love, and great reading websites too.  And there will be more competitions and chances to win prizes.

In the meantime, here's a little joke for you all!

A chicken walks into the library.  It goes up to the circulation desk and says: "book, book, book, boook".The librarian hands the chicken a book. It tucks it 
under his wing and runs out. A while later, the chicken runs back in, throws
the first book into the return bin and goes back to the librarian saying: 
"book, book, book, bok, boook". Again the librarian gives it a book, and the 
chicken runs out. The librarian shakes her head.  Within a few minutes,the chicken is back, returns the book chickenand starts all over again: "boook, book, book book boook". 
The librarian gives him yet a third book, but this time as the chicken is running out the door, she follows it. The chicken runs down the street, through the park and down to the riverbank. 

There, sitting on a lily pad is a big, green frog. The chicken holds up the book and shows it to the frog, saying: "Book, bok, bok, boook". 

The frog blinks, and croaks: "read-it, read-it, read-it".

Hee hee!

Happy reading, everyone!
