Here’s what’s happening at the library!

K…..S…..U…..Wildcats! Wabash Cannonball! Willie the Wildcat! 52,000 purple clad fans. Nose bleed section. Above it all. Perfectly in sync marching band. The purple and orange fall sunset behind the stadium entrance. Did I mention FREE tickets?
Oh, the memories. My daughter said, “I miss college.” It has been only four and a half months for her. For me, a few more, but, oh the memories!
As I looked over those young students and young alumni, I hope I got my students off to a good start those 32 years by teaching reading strategies to the ones that found reading difficult. They won’t remember and neither will their parents…..but I do.
Reading is the foundation of all these students’ studies. I am so glad I had a part in helping those children “tackle” that skill and feel S-U-C-C-E-S-S!
“2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?” Those parents and grandparents that bring their children and grandchildren into our well stocked movie section to get the latest feature and make the rule of checking out a book or two, also. Rah, Rah, Rah for them!
College days fun? You bet. Go back to those days? No way. I’ll stick with the memories, those stories get better every year.
Speaking of going back, there are a few patrons that come in and say, “I read this book a long time ago, but I want to read it again.” I’m not knocking that practice, after all, I go back to the Young Adult and Junior Fiction books that I grew to love teaching to those middle school students. No matter the genre, no matter the author, no matter length of book or article, no matter the age category of text……”What do we want? READERS! When do we want’em? NOW!
So, “Hey, Hey,
What do you say?
Send ALL those readers my way!”
Get Fired Up and Read! Go, Team, Go!
