I was inspired by my friend, Lydia, to make a doll library! She made one that I modeled mine after.
Welcome to McIntire Books!
The desk is two three-ring binders with a piece of cardboard on top.
Here’s the desk top. There is a computer (Sharpie), scanner (Sharpie), and card swipe (Tape). There’s also a communion cup that holds a pencil.
Here is a game-board I made, and a little box for the educational books.
And here are the other books! I made them out of a piece of paper and Sharpie.
And here is the couch.
This is the bulletin board.
Now I’ll show you a little photo story of how the library works.
Molly: Hello! Welcome to McIntire Books! I’m Molly. How can I help you?
Emily: Hi! I’d just like to look at the books.
Molly: Okay! The books are over here. And educational books are in that box. *points at purple box*
Emily: Thank you. *sits down* Hmmm, I think I’ll get ‘Meet Caroline,’ and ‘Wedding Wings.’
Emily: I’m ready to check out! Do I need a library card?
Molly: Only if you want one.
Emily: I do!
Emily: Here you go, Molly.
Molly: Thanks. *swipe*
Molly: Where are the bar codes on these? Oh, there they are.
Molly: Would you like to participate in the summer reading program?
Emily: What is it?
Molly: Well, it’s sponsored (Loren here, I just realized that I spelled ‘Sponserd’ wrong :P) by ‘Town Square Ice -cream.
Molly: Every two books you read gets you a small prize . . .
. . .And every ten, you get a BIG prize!
Emily: That sounds great! How can I start?
Molly: Take a game board. Write the name of every book you read this summer!
Emily: I’m just going to sit here and read my books.
Emily: Do you have any coffee?
Molly: Yes, we do! What would you like in it?
Emily: A little milk, please.
Molly: Here you go!
Emily: Thank you.
Emily: Time to start reading!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ONE AND A HALF HOURS LATER~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Emily: I’ve read two books! May I have a prize?
Molly: Of course!
Molly: May I have your game-board?
Emily: *pushes game-board* Sure.
Molly: *signs game-board with initials’
Molly: Here are the prizes. Pick one.
Emily: I’ll have the chocolate.
Emily: Good bye!
