So far this year, we have circulated 3,394 titles (Aug/Sept 1566, Oct 1082, Nov 746), and had 1100 students on passes (no, I'm not estimating - Aug/Sept 400, Oct 429, Nov 271).
The superintendent has placed a focus on Literacy this year (especially) so I'm hoping those numbers will stop their downward trend.
We're heading into a break, which will be very much welcomed. As a parent myself, I know it's not a break for everybody, but being able to sleep in a little will be a restful change. And I've just put out, with the help of several wonderful student volunteers, a section called Big Books to Get You through the Holidays. There will hopefully be lots of reading time!
