Gr 3–5—The Holms, the brother/sister team behind the graphic novel series "Squish" and "Babymouse," continue Babymouse's adventures, taking her into middle school. Much like Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" crossover chapter books, this new series will appeal to readers looking for slightly more challenging fare. Though this title contains more text than the original "Babymouse" books, there are numerous illustrations throughout, the font is large, and the difficulty of the language is comparable to that of previous books, making it ideal for fans crossing over into longer chapter book territory. Babymouse is just as energetic as ever, but now she's dealing with middle school drama and algebra. She doesn't want to fit in anymore—she wants to stand out! Babymouse finds the perfect opportunity in film club, where she is chosen to write and direct a movie inspired by her favorite epic dramas. She realizes that it's not as easy as she thought, with a diva leading actress and no budget. Ultimately, Babymouse learns that working as a team is more important than being a star. VERDICT A first purchase where the graphic novel series is popular. For fans of "Dork Diaries" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid."—Jessica Ko, Los Angeles Public Library
Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.
When choosing a dealer to buy your school lockers, it is important to find someone that offers a great selection all year round. Many facilities have experienced the long lead time that comes with buying school lockers during the busy season. Large schools start ordering hundred thousand dollar orders in April that throw off production until October. That’s why we at A Plus Warehouse keep careful inventory of our most popular lockers, so you do not have a lead time issue when working with us.
Box lockers have the smallest amount of storage space, which also allows for maximum lockers in a limited space. These are great for small personal items like your wallet, cell phone, keys, jewelry, etc., as well as small tools, parts, or components. Because of the option to securely lock these units, employees can leave valuable belongings in them without fear of theft.
Steel thickness: lockers tend to be made from a standard thickness of steel, which is commonly 0.8 mm. thick; but heavy-duty or high-security lockers are offered as a standard option by some manufacturers, or may be available on special order. A typical locker of this sort may be constructed from steel 1.2 mm. thick, for example, and is usually fitted with three-point locking, regardless of the number of tiers.

I purchased these lockers for my husbands engineering office. Several of the men do field work and when they are in the office their STUFF is all over the place. The lockers depth of 18" is plenty wide to accommodate a regular clothes hanger without crowding or having to force it in. It will hold a jacket or rain gear, steel toe or rubber boots as well as a tool belt or small tool kit.
