|Aurelia Pennekamp Elementary School Library||
The library is open this week although most classes are not visiting. The minimum day schedule interferes with the usual class visit schedule, and furthermore, classes will be spending time visiting our fabulous winter book fair. The classes that do visit are hearing books about snow. January and February are such busy months in the library, what with the California Young Reader Medal nominees as well as the schoolwide Literacy Event, there's really no other time to talk about snow--and make sure our California kids know what it is!

George stirred. "Forgive me, ma'am. I don't think that's true. Surely knowledge of every kind is vital to us in our battle with the Problem."
"Dear George, you are so very young." That husky laugh again. "I can see that such concepts might be difficult for you to grasp."
"No, George is right," Lockwood said. "George is always right. We shouldn't fear uncovering things that are shrouded in darkness. We should shine light on them. Like the lantern in your agency's logo. That's what an agent does, after all."
