The advertisement on Book Sale Finder for the Wilton Public Library Book Sale  in Wilton, CT, read,All books on sale for this sale… not just Children and Teens.”

The reason for the clarification? This annual end of summer book sale usually offers the best selections of donated books for children and teens in the area.

This past weekend’s sale  (9/19-21) did not disappoint.

In the space of an hour, I collected over 200 books suited for students in grades 5-10. High interest titles such as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging for the older students, selections from the Lunch Lady graphic novel series (“serving justice, and serving…..lunch!”) for the younger students. My shopping spree was fueled by the knowledge that Sunday was the ½ price day. Hardcovers were $1.50; paperbacks were as little as $.25. At these prices, who could resist picking up multiple copies of Chicken Soup for the Teenaged Soul or duplicate selections from Margaret Peterson’s Haddix series?

Multiple elections for high school

All books are headed to the independent reading classroom libraries in the intermediate, middle, and high schools in West Haven. In particular, the SSR (silent sustained reading) in grades 7 & 8 is a reading initiative that is now possible because of the new 90 minute block schedule. Teachers explained the SSR program to parents during the Open House last week and encouraged attending parents to discuss reading for fun with their children.

My industrious selecting caught the attention of several of the volunteers who provided the extra bags and boxes I needed. These Friends of the Wilton Library were genuinely delighted that I was removing a large portion of their inventory.
“These books will be enjoyed again,” from one.
“You are exactly who we want to come to these sales,” from another, “these will be books for classrooms!”
“You got so many of the better titles,” from a third who seemed to know YA literature as she perused my selections.

Like good professional salespeople, they continued to affirm the choices I made as they counted….and counted, and counted. The sum total? $150.00!

This event was advertised as an “Awesome Autumn Book Sale” and yes, it was awesome! This is the first day of autumn, and this autumn I can confidently predict there will be a multiple floods…multiple classroom book floods!

Thank you, Friends of the Wilton Public Library!

Awesome Autumn Book Floods The advertisement on Book Sale Finder for the Wilton Public Library Book Sale  in Wilton, CT, read, “All books on sale for this sale… not just Children and Teens.”

This is a photo I edited for my AP portfolio class concentration on showing people’s identities through their shoes (though I think it ended up being more like people’s lower bodies but whatever).

This was done completely last minute yesterday as I had to get all 12 pieces in by midnight and I realized I didn’t even have half of them done. So, I decided I needed to go to the tennis courts near school at like 8:00 at night, so my little sister and I hopped in my car and started to drive there. 

I remembered when I suggested this concentration idea, my teacher suggested going to the fire station and taking pictures of the firefighter’s boots because they were so interesting and iconic and such. It was on the way to the tennis courts and my sister somehow convinced me to go see if they were there. So about 15-20 minutes later, we’re sitting outside the adjacent police station waiting for the firefighters to come into the parking lot after finishing responding to a call.

Not only were the police incredibly nice and actually called the truck to see if they would stop by, but the firefighters themselves were so kind and understanding about being bothered by two kids late at night to take pictures of their shoes (because seriously, how weird is that?). They listened to what I had to say about the school project and soon I had the photos I needed.

The one thing that killed me was while I was taking general pictures of the fire engine, the driver (whose name was Jim) TURNED ON THE SIREN LIGHTS AND I DIDN’T EVEN ASK HE JUST DID IT. (sorry to be like a kid, but that was totally awesome in my book. yay flashing lights!)

I just wanted to shout out to my local Wilton Fire Department and Police Department for being so awesome and understanding and also not dismissing us for being odd during the late hours of the night.
