The media center is officially open for business and guess what? Everything is awesome! I am a big fan of Legos and so are the other members of my family. So, as you would expect, we watched The Lego Movie (we actually bought a copy too) and the song was instantly stuck in our heads.
What I liked most about the movie was that the main character was different from the other characters in the movie. For the most part he fit in with everyone around him, but he thought differently than everyone else. In the movie, he was criticized for this until something BIG happened (no spoilers here – you’ll have to watch the movie) and everything changed.
My goal is to establish the media center as a place where it’s okay to be different – whether it’s the way you look, the clothes you wear, the place you were born, the ideas that you have or the books you read. Everyone is different, but that’s okay. In fact, it’s better than okay – it’s awesome!
Be on the lookout for special events related to our theme this year and remember: Everything is awesome in the library!
