The Librarian Who Saved the Day

This story was collaboratively written by the entire second grade as a tribute to our beloved librarian.

Once upon a time in a quiet, little town called Manassas, there was a joyful little elementary school called Loch Lomond. In the center of the school there was an amazing, funny, and clever librarian named Mrs. Yankey. She had an efficient and creative assistant named Mrs. Loerch. The library was always busy with working children. They were constantly reading or checking out books. Mrs. Yankey was reading astonishing stories to the children. Everything was happy and peaceful at the superhero librarianLoch Lomond Library.

One day a new second grade student came to Loch Lomond. Right from the beginning, he was trouble. His name was Rocky Sullivan. He was very tall and had black curly hair. His eyes were blue and seemed full of trouble. He was mean to all of the kids and always played tricks on them.

He got into trouble a lot and blamed other people for it. He never did his homework or studied for a test. He lied all of the time and had to go to the principal every day. But what everyone at Loch Lomond didn’t know was that Rocky Sullivan was really an evil villain disguised as a student. Rocky Sullivan never learned to read, and he didn’t like books and really didn’t like libraries. He wanted to destroy all books and anyone who loved books.

Finally, the day came for Rocky Sullivan to pull off his evil scheme. The children were busy reading, writing, and learning. No one noticed that Rocky had slipped out into the hallway. He pulled the fire alarm. All of the students and teachers left the building and lined up outside.
