how to make a librarian smile

One of my 11th grade students said this to me today.

“Before you came here, we had really stupid books. No one wanted to read.”

That was probably one of the best things a student has ever said to me. I’ve worked real hard to revamp our book collection. When I arrived the average date of our fiction books was 1978. Gross. I’ve pushed it up now to 1995 and what that student said to me was a huge validation for me.
