The Tulsa library system has hundreds of volunteers, from teenagers to retirees, who help us with our day to day operations, and we are very glad for the time and effort they donate to the library. Volunteers perform a variety of tasks, from shelving books and serving as an After School Homework Club coach to tutoring a Literacy student or adding book and movie reviews to our online catalog.

September is coming up fast, and the book selected for Book Club this month is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
From the library website: Budding cartoonist Junior leaves his troubled school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white farm town school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.

Every so often, we post something about how ridiculous the English language really is. The following excerpt from the poem The Chaos by G Nolst Tenite shows why learning to read and write in English is so difficult, both for English language learners and Adult basic education students. Give it a try, and see how well YOU do! You can see the whole poem here.
