Exploring the Library

We go to the public library often, and the kids read a ton of books- so many, that I could never keep up with them all.  I try to list a representative sample on our Goodreads account.

Naturally, they have each developed an interest in certain titles and series.  Our local branch has an extensive collection of their favorites, but these voracious readers have devoured them all and still want more.  So, today we learned how to request copies from other Ohio libraries.  Each girl requested a book from Search Ohio.

O7 requested one of the Flower Fairy books. S8 wanted to read the third novel in the Nancy Drew (classic) series. Her search was interesting, because she discovered that it was difficult to figure out which book was the third (they are not listed sequentially in the catalogue search). So she had to go talk with the librarian to figure out which one was next, and then she had to look for it on the shelf. (It’s The Bungalow Mystery, by the way.)  She found her Nancy Drew book at our branch, and then requested another book on Search Ohio.
