School Library/Archives

Welcome to the "School Library" -- where you'll find printed items of interest from back in the day at Mark Twain Elementary School.

We're also using this Library to archive things that have appeared on our Home Page in the past. So if you are missing something you've seen before, there's a good chance we archived it here.

Do you remember this 1966 hit by Bob Kuban and The In-Men?

The song "blasted to the top of the charts on St. Louis' Sing-A-Long Survey" and was #1 on Billboard's, St. Louis Top Sellers for three weeks.  It hit  #12 on the National Charts, #5 on Toronto's CHUM Hit Parade, and #7 in Australia.

Do you still have the 45 rpm?  (Not surprisingly - I do!)  Enjoy!
