Day In The Life of a Teen Librarian-School Visit Edition

So today I had a middle school visit to do research on their reports on famous Americans. School visits to the library mean that I show they how to use the catalog, tour the library and then the students spend the next 2 1/2-3 hours reseaching (I think the teachers enjoy being out of school just as much as the students!) Here are some of the gems from my morning:

Me: When you are looking for biographical information, don't forget about children's biographies. They can be a good source of information and sometimes provide you with a list of other sources to check. So are you going to be a book snob and not look at children's books today?
Students: Yes!
Me: Right, let's try this one again...

Student: Wasn't that Mandela guy that one guy?

Student: I want to find information on Orville Redenbacher.
Me: That sounds like a fun project. What made you pick him?
Student: So I could bring popcorn to class.

Student: I'm going to do that peanut guy because I like peanut butter and they make that out of peanuts.

And my personal favorite of the day:

Student: Can you help me find books on Delight D. Eisenhower?

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
