Hello future readers!
Well, it's final project time at our school again, so last Wednesday after school, Jennifer and I walked over to the Springfield Public Library to get a book to help us with our project. When we got there we saw some of our friends also working on their final projects.
Stephanie and Shante' were doing their project on Butterflies.
Kim and Cheryl were looking through an encyclopedia, writing down ideas on what to do for their project.
Susan and Crissy teamed up to do their project together, but Susan was at home with a bad cold, so Crissy came down to the library alone to pick up their books.
When you're in high school, your final project is called a term paper. Kerry finished hers last week, so she brought her little sister Velvet to the library. They were in the cozy corner reading "Ramona The Pest".
Jennifer and I decided to do our project about tigers. Since more people were coming into the library, Jennifer went to grab a table, while I looked for the book.
I found a super book of "Big Cats" and brought it back to the table to show Jennifer. She thought it was just perfect.
I looked up facts about tigers while Jennifer wrote them down. We were going to write a report and make a poster later at her house.
The library is a pretty groovy place. Sometimes they do cool things like "Pajama Story Hour" or show cool films like "Curious George", or "The Tin Soldier". A couple of years ago, they had a parade where some people dressed as storybook characters. I remember my favorite was "The Cat In The Hat." The librarian, Mrs. Stone, is really nice. I think she must be one of the smartest people ever, 'cos she always knows where to find just the right books, and knows lotsa things about animals and history and stuff like that.
Are there still libraries in the future? Maybe everybody's home has a "library computer" like on "Star Trek". They don't read books on that show, they mostly look at computer screens. I don't think I'd like that too much. I think I would really miss books. Anyway, I can't wait to get started on our poster. We're going to make a giant drawing of a tiger in the jungle. I hope we get a good grade on it. Do you do a final project before the end of the school year? If you do, I hope you get a good grade, too.
Until next time, future readers,
