Librarians – Revised
With school beginning, a librarian-themed storytime can be fun for a class visit coming for a library tour, or for a regular library storytime. For a craft project, make bookmarks using some of these ideas: 25 DIY Bookmarks For Kids (playideas.com) .

Deedy, Carmen. The Library Dragon. Lotta Scales thinks she needs to protect the books in the school library, but learns the books are there for the children to check out.
