On a personal note, the Desk-less Librarian’s daughter returns to school this week along with many other children in the town of O’Fallon and across the nation. Our librarians hope that everybody has an awesome and educational school year! We are here to help with those papers, tests, and other school related issues.

And until next time, happy reading!
