Well then, you might try enrolling in either Master Dreadthorn's School for Wayward Villains or Blatt School for the Insanely Gifted. Granted, you must be the child of a notorious evil entity, such as Dracula, The Big Bad Wolf, or a warlock and be lacking in evil to normally qualify for entry into the former school, but heck, you could always give it a shot. "Gifted" has a lot of definitions. The deciding factor for entry into the later school is that you have the ability to invent something the headmaster might want to steal from you, thereby increasing his fame, fortune, and power — but you don't know this of course. Trust me, if you do have the opportunity to attend one of these schools, you will gain a whole new perspective on education.
Villain School : good curses evil by Stephanie S. Sanders — Join Rune, Jez, and Wolf Junior as they try to succeed at a nearly impossible Plot in order to avoid being expelled for not being bad enough.
The School for the Insanely Gifted by Dan Elish — Wild rides, literally, are in store for you with Daphna, Harkin, and Cynthia as they embark on an international search for Daphna's missing mother and prepare for the school's upcoming "Insanity Cup" competition. Don't miss this action-packed adventure fantasy. If you liked The Mysterious Benedict Society, you will love this for sure.
Fast, fun, reads, both of these weird school books are sure to please!
Does the east/west entry drive (specifically where patrons have access to the north/south crossing to the CPL) need speed bumps or a speed sign?
At just about 3pm today (Tues. 10/25/2011) I observed a library employee speed rather rapidly through this intersection. This seems to be an unsafe practice as it could put patrons in jeopardy (including me!).
Sorry to say, I have seen this sort of thing before. I am sorry to say I don't have a video of it, but will be carrying my video camera when visiting the CPL next time and after that.
