  • Paper and pencil
  • How to print just the page content, not the extra junk on the webpage? [I show her how to cut and paste to Word]

  • The New World and The Last Templar [the former is here on the shelf, the latter we'll have to get from another library]
  • [phone] How High the Moon [I swear we have this, but it's not in the I give her the number for the library in the next town over, outside our consortium, which may have it]

  • Spider's Revenge [I leave it for ordering next time we do a demand order]
