  1. First, welcome to the Media Clerk “club”! I hope you have enjoyed your first year. Also, I love that you would bring the Narnia series to the island!

  2. I love “The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate” it is such a heart warming story and makes you realize the reality of what life must have been like for a young girl growing up at that time, wanting to be like her grandfather and being interested in the great outdoors and science, something a lady wouldn’t do!
    A good friend and a fellow librarian at West Kearns, Johneen Anderson and I read it about the same time and we loved it and talked about it!
