It is cooold outside (well, Vancouver-cold). And it’s cooold in the library at St. George’s Junior School. This got Mr. Weber and Ms. Walker talking about having a fire to warm up, and the conversation naturally shifted to the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. This is a story about a futuristic American society where books are outlawed and “firemen” burn any that are found. A big pile of burning books would certainly make our library nice and toasty, wouldn’t it? (We kid, we kid . . .)
