Cuts don't reflect words

We just had a provincial election in BC and, one of the issues that was front and centre, was funding cuts to school districts. While cutbacks in my own district were not as drastic as in Bellevue, Washington, they are serious for our school libraries. Starting next fall, there will be no full time teacher librarians in any of the elementary or middle schools in the district and we are losing our district librarian. I wrote a letter to the editor of a local paper in response to a statement of… Continue

School district criticized for reassigning librarians

This article resonates home with me. This is a process that we have often seen in school districts across Canada. Bellevue District is a suburb of Seattle, Washington. It is regrettable that such drastic cuts are finding there way in Washington State.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is such a great read and it is science fiction, survival, violence, but so much more! Peeta and Katniss Everdeen are chosen to represent District 12 --- they must fight to the death with all the other participants of the other 11 districts in Panem (used to be Earth). Peeta has always been in love with Katniss but the powers that be have them act like star crossed lovers and the audience who watches by TV the whole time, JUST LOVE IT!!! The story involves psychological suspense… Continue
