New order of graphic novels for the library

Joanne Ligamari, teacher librarian, received her annual order of new books.

Joanne Ligamari, the teacher librarian, has finally received her yearly order of new books; two full racks of books. This time, majority the books are graphic novels. Ligamari made sure to order graphic novels because students have been requesting them and they have been popular according to many of the workshops that Ligamari attends for librarians. She made sure to order a variety of graphic novels in different styles and genres. The graphic novels range from history to manga.

Ligamari regularly attends workshops and reads magazines specially for librarians to stay current on book trends for young adults. This way, she always has good books to show her students.

“There’s no sense in getting a book nobody reads,” said Ligamari.

Ligamari also uses money that students pay her for printing papers to but books from a used book store.

Ligamari makes the most of her budget and any of the extra money she gets. She receives about $3,000 per school year.

“I would love a bigger budget,” says Ligamari.

$3,000 sounds like a lot, but it’s only about three dollars per student. New hardcover books can be very expensive, $30 or more.

Whatever it is a student likes to read, it can be found in the school library, make sure to stop by and check out these new books.
