  1. My friend, Laurie Lewis, told me about your blog. I’ve just finished reading your archives, and it has made for very pleasant reading in the Sacramento area heat!!! Can’t wait to hear about you new school adventures.

    A couple of questions for you. I’m a school Librarian, and was wondering. Did your old school, or your new school, have a library? Is there another library in either town?

    • Nice to meet you Erin. Both schools have a library. Both school libraries act as the village library. In our old village, the library was only open during school hours. The traffic appeared to only be students. In Point Hope, the school/village library has been open all summer. We saw posters advertising a summer reading program. Seems like a much more active community library. We’ve heard that the Point Hope library has a larger community as they share books within the whole north slope borough, which includes Barrow.

      You might be interested to know that the Fairbanks library had a bush lending system. We ordered books, DVDs and CDs that we got in the mail while we were in Shishmaref. That was a terrific program with terrific librarians!
