How did I survive Book Fairs without this?

This is seriously my most favorite purchase so far this year! It's the Royal Sovereign Electric Coin Sorter and it counts change, too! Anyone who has had to count bags upon bags of change for the Book Fair will know exactly what I'm talking about! This is amazing!!! I can't wait to put it to good use at our Fall Book Fair in September. What is your favorite item that helps simplify your Book Fair?

Bring on the summer makeover!

I finished school at the end of May, but had to go back yesterday to take EVERYTHING out of the library to get ready for a summertime makeover! It took 6 1/2 hours to move every book out and into our Music room, which is half the school away from the library. We will be getting sheetrock placed over the brown paneling, new carpet and a wall of built-in bookcases. I'm so excited to go back and see what it looks like when it's finished.

Our library at the beginning of the year...

Our library when we left yesterday...

We are so thankful that we have bookcases and don't have to look for books like this! ;)

Will your library be going through any big changes over the summer?
