Have you ever wished you could look at Kepler's library catalog to see if we own a book? You can! Go to our online site and you can search by author, title, keyword, and other options. Once you find the title you're looking for, see if it says any copies are available. If none are, it's checked out. If some are available, look at the call number to know where to find your book in the library.
One of the great things about having an author visit is being able to purchase a book to remember the visit by as you read and reread it. Captain Steinke's picture book has tall tales, of course, but also a glossary and a little information about life in the past on board ship.
The flyer below gives information about your options. Help Captain Steinke know how many books to bring by filling out the Google Form at this link.
The blog has been very quiet for several months, but the library itself has been busy! Come in and see our new shelves (you can lean on them and they won't fall over!) and try checking out with our new digital catalog!
Even better, we will have our first author visit this week. Captain Johann Steinke, a licensed tallship captain, credentialed teacher, and local author, will join us on Thursday to share his book, The Greatest Captain in the World. He'll also talk about seafaring adventures, let students act out scenes, and take questions.
Several classes have heard the book once by now, and we have collected some great questions about being on board a ship and about writing - I can't wait to hear the answers!
Captain Steinke will be on hand after school with an opportunity for you to buy a signed copy of this funny and informative book to read and reread.
Look for more local author visits this spring!
