    3. This book just doesn t fit with my own personal beliefs about what a library is and what it means to be a librarian If you are someone who believes that libraries should be mostly physical book centered like 90% books and 10% everything else this is probably a great book for you I simply won t be using it in the future.

    4. In this follow up to the earlier The Library Dragon, the time has come for the school librarian, Miss Lotty, to retire The airbrushed illustrations are filled with rich colors and provide wonderful perspectives for instance, readers will see first the hand of Mike Krochip who plans to create Media World in the library There are also dragonflies all across the book s pages as well as signs that Miss Lotty s long dormant dragon nature is starting to stir as the plans to remove all books from the l [...]

    5. This was fun, I guess It s an ode to how wonderful books and libraries are I loved the endpages with plenty of pro library quotes As expected, the new librarian reassures the retiring library dragon that she ll care for the books, and won t get rid of all paper books in favor of technology though I was sad to see the anti computer message Cybrary I don t think we use that term, except for a brief while at the turn of the century It s not an either or dichotomy with e books and paper books You ca [...]

    6. Return of the Library Dragon by Carmen Agra Deedy, illustrated by Michael P White I totally missed when this book came out Quite enjoyed reading a sequel with another great message touching library celebration with a goal for children to have a balance of books and technology Good for discussions with children about retirement as well I did find the book a little weak in how it was wrapped up but was quite happy to return to the world of the Library Dragon.

    7. This is definitely not subtle about the retirement and return of the Library Dragon, but it does have an interesting message about the difference between e books and paper books I m going to buy it for the end papers if nothing else I ll probably read it for my first class, just so I can wear my Not a Library Dragon Tee Shirt.

    8. This is another great book for Media Specialists to read aloud It is 2 in the Library Dragon series I don t know if there will be Carmen Deedy said she wasn t planning on it Put the characters are memorable and fun here they are lamenting the eBook revolution happening in their library when Lottie has just retired

    9. I love sharing The Library Dragon with upper elementary students at the beginning of the school year I think they ll enjoy this sequel just as much.

    10. With word play and humor the changing form of libraries is addressed This book will appeal particularly to those close to the discussions about how many books to keep and how much technology to embrace as library budgets are written and mission statements are developed A worthy sequel to The Library Dragon, and a great gift for children s librarians.

    11. Sequel to The Library Dragon Miss Lotty Scales is retiring, but the day before she does all the books are taken away and replaced with computers An IT guy is in the library setting everything up to be a cybrary Of course Lotty is burning up, becoming again the library dragon The children are all in despair over losing their books too Libraries can exist with BOTH books and computers.

    12. Kind of disappointed as The Library Dragon was one of my favorite childhood books However, this just seemed to take a jab at e books and tablets, not much of a story I totally agree that books trump e books, but it felt like of a diss than a children s book.

    13. I don t like when books act like technology is terrible or evil Books are fabulous I love books But so are computers and other technology We can t we just appreciate and benefit from both
