The Library...where all you need is imagination and a Library card to enter a world of information.
 November 2011 Volume 13 Issue 11
Quote of the Month
Libraries house many conflicting opinions withoutinsisting one is right and the others wrong; librariesare open to all people without asking them toconform to any one type; and librarians are trained tohelp people find what they are searching for rather than what any specific librarian thinks they ought to be searching for.

FROM THE DIRECTOR
 November marks a time of giving thanks. One holidaythis month is a special time that we should say thanks toour veterans who have served our country so that we canremain free. The following is a true story that I’d like toshare with you and remind you that Friday, November 11
th
is a special day.
 
A LESSON THAT SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN ALL
 
SCHOOLS AND COLLEGESBack in September of 2005, on the first day of school,Martha Cothren, a social studies school teacher atRobinson High School in Little Rock, AK, did somethingnot to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal andthe building supervisor, she removed all of the desks fromher classroom. When the first period kids entered theroom, they discovered that there were no desks.'Ms. Cothren, where're our desks?'She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell mehow you earn the right to sit at a desk.'They thought, 'Well, maybe it's our grades.''No,' she said.'Maybe it's our behavior.'She told them, 'No, it's not even your behavior.'And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third period.
 
Still no desks in the classroom. Byearly afternoon television news crews had startedgathering in Ms. Cothren's classroom to report about thiscrazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room.The final period of the day came and as the puzzledstudents found seats on the floor of the desklessclassroom, Martha Cothren said, 'Throughout the day noone has been able to tell me just what he/she has done toearn the right to sit at the desks that are ordinarily foundin this classroom.
 
 Now I am going to tell you.'At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it. Twenty
-
seven (27) U.S.Veterans, all in uniforms, walked into that classroom,each one carrying a school desk. The Vets began placingthe school desks in rows, and then they would walk over and stand alongside the wall.
 
By the time the last soldier had set the final desk in place, those kids started tounderstand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, justhow the right to sit at those desks had been earned.Martha said, 'You didn't earn the right to sit at thesedesks. These heroes did it for you. They placed the deskshere for you. Now, it's up to you to sit in them.
 
It is your responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be goodcitizens.
 
They paid the price so that you could have thefreedom to get an education.
 
Don't ever forget it.'Remember to thank a veteran today!
