Welcome to the library. My name is Ms Dewey. In a minute I would like you all to show your school swipe cards, bar code side up, at the library desk. Except those who had their school photograph taken last week. Don’t do that young man. We need to register each of you before you choose any books. The large books on the right hand side of the third isle in the last section of the library are for reference only so please only use these inside the library. There is a lunch time poetry club every other Tuesday but not when there is another lesson in here. Can you line up in reverse alphabetical order.
