I know some of y all have been hiding overdue books in your house, back in a closet somewhere, afraid of the library police. This is your chance! Time to ransack your houses and turn in all overdue books, tapes, and magazines without fear of recrimination or million-dollar fines. You can even do it anonymously, by cruising through the alley in the dead of night and chucking them in the book drop. Why, you may ask, is the library doing this? Because we're getting organized ! Ortonville is a member of the Pioneerland Library System, which has the dubious distinction of being the only library system in the state of Minnesota that hasn't been computerized. We're finally getting everything together and (cross your fingers) hope to be in business this fall. Part of that process involves putting a barcode sticker on each and every check-out-able item the library owns, and I can't do that if it's on a shelf in your front closet or under your sofa cushion. So please, everybody, find those books-n-stuff and get them back to the library ASAE While we're on the topic, please keep an open mind about the automation process. Things will change a little bit at the library, but it will also provide a bunch of new services for everyone. For example, you'll actually be able to know how many things you have checked out and when they're due. Requests for materials will be processed much faster. All the videos and audiobooks will be on the catalog, not just the books. Our books are loaded on the new system right this very minute, actually, and you can find it on the Internet at (This will make more sense when we're completely online and you can do research and place requests from home. Or Belize, for that matter.) From the library side of things, checking materials in and out will be much faster. The new system will provide information on what people use at the library, and I'll be able to base purchasing decisions on it. Most importantly, I'll have much more accurate and timely information on what we have access to, rather than saying, "Uh, I dunn0; let me get back to you. " I just hate that... I'll be keeping you posted, so stay tuned.

Sometimes as kids grow up they struggle with friendships. How do you go about making friends? Do you stay friends with the same people forever? What if your friend suddenly rejects you? What if your friends don't always like each qther and you get caught in the middle? Parents can help children through the rough times of friendship by role playing, teaching them to follow rules, and sharing similar experiences. Role playing helps shy children learn to speak with authority. After practicing with a parent, a kindergartner can firmly tell the bully on the bus, "Eric, stop pulling my hair right now !" Or a second grade boy who never gets his turn at the computer can say, "I was here first, so stop pushing me!" If children freeze when threatened, memorizinga comeback may help call a bully's bluff. Children who don't follow rules or who always insist on being in charge may not be accepted by the group. Parents shouldn't allow children to bend a game's rules or throw a temper tantrum after losing a game. behavior. If a clique shuts out a child, developing a friendship with children accepted by the group but positioned near the edge connects the excluded child with the clique. The relationship might even become a fast friendship of its own. When children lose a best friend, parents can help by listening to them and sharing a similar childhood experience. This reassures children that their experience isn't uncommon. Parents can also encourage them to talk with the ex-friend in private or to move on to another group of friends. Parents may need to help their child think of what they want to say to their ex-friend or how to ask a tough question. A new hobby or skill might be the answer for a shy child. When children believe they are good at something, they feel more confident, and they may meet other children with the same interests. Unpopularity and rejection are sure to happen at some point in most children's lives, but parents can offer children friendship tips and loving support to help them through these tough times.
