What Book is that Hiding Behind a Cover

Hello fellow readers! My name is Mrs, Dewey the Librarian. I work at a very classy library with many books but for some reason my books are not getting checked out. So me and my fellow librarians came up with a plan to get more books checked out, we are all going to make our own book displays.
My group is in charge of the mystery section of the library. My own personal job is to be the director of design and to be the research librarian. By being the director of the design I get to have the final say on the design of the display, my group will also help me create the design but if there is something I don’t like on the final design I get the final say. For my second job as the research librarian I am in charge of researching the different books that I want to include in our book display.  
To make sure that our book display attracts people we have to market and advertise it. A good way to advertise it would be to tell my friends and family that there are really cool book displays in the library and that they need to come and check them out and our books! A good way to market our display would be to add lots of color and pizzazz! My group is going to make a body outline on the floor which will definitely attract a lot of people. We also wanted to have a catchphrase that will be in BIG letters.
I’m very excited about my groups idea! We decided to cover up the name of the books and everything else so that the only thing that they will see is the back cover of the book, Then once the people choose a book there will be a riddle on the book, the people will have to try and figure out which book they think is hiding behind a cover. If they guess right they will get some sort of food reward!
Thank you for tuning into my babbling on about my book display!

Archeaoligist Museum

Hi there! Dr. Bones checking in after the museum exhibit. The exhibit went really well, a lot of people and the guests really liked our exhibit!
By doing this museum tour I have learned a lot about ancient civilizations. One thing that I learned is that every civilization needed to be close to a water source, like a ocean, river or a lake. If they weren’t close to a water source they wouldn’t have anything to drink. Another thing learned about ancient civilizations is that everyone needs to help.  If the moms and grandmas didn’t clean, knit and cook their family wouldn’t be successful.  If the men didn’t enforce rules and farm they wouldn’t have anything to eat.  Everyone had a role and if 1 person didn’t do their job, they probably wouldn't survive.  Third, every civilization expressed their culture.  They expressed their culture in ways they might not realize. Such as, their clothing, they food they eat, the way they speak and lots more ways.  These things were only a few of what every successful civilization needed to have!
I think that our group did the model really well!  I thought that all the hard work really paid off!  Also, the model was the most important part of our museum!  Our model was good because we split the roles up.  I had the cardboard, I put the grass on, I made the river and ocean and I made the hut.  My partner made the people and animals, the cave wall and the crops/farm.  
I wish that our group could have divided the jobs more evenly because some people did a lot of work while other people did not.  If our group added these changes I know that we would have been a much better group!
The thing I would change about my museum to make it better would be to make it flashy and to stand out more!  I would do this because the flash groups were the first exhibits guests would look at!  Also I would make better food samples because those were also the first exhibits guests stopped at!  Flashy and Food!  
I am so glad that our group got the chance to present in a museum! It was a great experience and it will make me a better archaeologist! Thanks!
