I’m about to start my monthly trips to the public library. Surprisingly, the students loved it. They complained a little when it was hot, but they loved going. Olive Boy was a little troublesome, but all in all, not that bad. I’ll resume the trips in October when it’s not so hot. Last year, we were pretty problem-free. The biggest problem I experienced was some of the students not being able to check out books because their parents did not return the library card application. Well, I (or the public library system) have the solution. There are two options. You can go into any branch location, fill it out and get the card on the spot or you can fill out the application online by clicking this link (http://www.lapl.org/about/librarycard_youth.html). Now you have up to 3 weeks to pick up the card.
