Thank you for returning some of the missing books from the library! One popular one that is still missing is Divergent by Veronica Roth. Also, there are still many missing books from Mrs. Bloemendaal’s English classroom case as well. At least four books from the Throne of Glass series are missing: Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Tower of Dawn, and Kingdom of Ash. Keep an eye out particularly for those. Thank you!
