What's happening in the Library/Bookstore??

Yesterday, thanks to Dallas After School Network and WFAA, both our Library/Bookstore and our After-School Academy were filmed, kids were interviewed, and we will have a short segment on After the Bell soon. I'll keep you posted.

I've been hanging out at the Library/Bookstore this week helping get it ready for the kids to come back. Tuesday was our re-opening after the holidays. As soon as school was out, three kids came running, huffing and puffing into the library. Miss Katrina asked them, "What are you running for? You really just couldn't wait to see me again?" To which one of the kids looked at her quizzically and responded, "No...I couldn't wait to get to the library!" I don't think her feelings were hurt too bad. :)

While I was at the Library/Bookstore, I couldn't help but get some footage. Katrina's got a great group of kids and I was thoroughly impressed with how engaged they are every time she reads a book. Of course, you can see in the video below that you really can't help but be enthralled by the book because of her great expressions.

This video shows the different things Katrina has the kids doing after school--from story time to sign language.
