This year we got some new comic books in the Casa library with the help of Brian's Comics -- the new comic book store on 4th Street. This all started when i saw the comic book section and i was thrilled to read some of it. But after i read all the books that i liked, i wanted to add more comics to the section. So i talked to Ms. Koval about it and she was happy about it but needed my help. She asked me to make a list of all the new comics i thought we needed in the library. At first i wasn't sure what books we should get. I just said some superheroes books that i knew and liked. Then i added some of superheroes that were popular and knew that people wold like. Later on when Brian's Comics opened up, we had a way to find out about new comics and other comics i didn't know about. I went down to the store to talk to the owner, Brian, about the project. He liked the idea so we got a deal with him. He helped us pick out some good ones and added some i didn't know but was interested in reading. We got a total in 32 comic books that were worth about $500. Plus Petaluma Batman gave us $50 for comics too. You can see in the picture how much it helped -- the top picture is the comic book section before and the bottom picture is the comic book section after with all the new books. I'm glad that i was able to be a part of putting more comic books on the shelves of the library, i hope next year i can be able to put even more various titles on the shelves. Also next year i'm going be the president of the Casa's new comic book club. I'm hoping i can get lots of people interested in it, widen the view of it, and have fun talking about the comic books i love.

On Friday March 8th while the rest of Casa was enjoying the rally, the Big House Book Club and library TA's were having a marvelous adventure at Meadow Elementary. The trip started with the crew (14 Seniors, 6 Juniors, and 6 Sophomores) departing early, heading towards the bus at 7:00 a.m. (yes, 7am!). As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with happy smiling whiskered (everyone was required to wear Cat in the Hat whiskers) faces. We went straight to the kitchen and scrambled 150 dozen eggs for the kids' breakfast of green eggs and ham. Students ate in the company of their teachers and staff, all adorably dressed up as Dr. Seuss characters. Once the bell rang for recess, the the playground was a madhouse of kids little and big. (Yeah, we got to play recess with them: teather-ball kick-ball, wall-ball, football, and thunder, plus monkey bars, jungle gym, swings, and jump rope.) After recess we gathered all of our cats in hats, thing ones and thing twos and the reading began. The kids were totally in to it and even asked to read a book or two. When it was time to leave, the Casa students were thanked with hugs, applause, and pizza. :)
