These last two days were CRAZY in the library. I wished I’d had time to snap a photo or two. There were a few periods of time where we actually had three full classes! All total we hosted ten classes across four blocks two days in a row. This does not include our lunch visitors. […]
Follett listens to our wants and needs. It seems each time Jason Smith, our SC/NC Account Manager with Follett Library Resources visits, he takes time to learn and relay our specifics needs, likes, and yes, even gripes back to the company. Whenever he calls to say he is in the area, we invite him in. It’s just a […]
This year we are going to experience a BYOD environment in our school. I’m glad for many reasons, one being it’s more and more difficult to monitor a “no devices allowed” policy, as even younger and younger students are packing a device or two in their bags.

It was created by Jenny Cox, school librarian in the coastal area of our state, Kensington Elementary School […]
Our library book tournament has made it to the last round of our Library March Madness, with the finalist competing for DHS Library Book of the Year at Dorman High School. Vying for that title are two books in a single series, respectively book 1 and book 2. Hunger Games, seeded at #6 matches up against Catching Fire, the #1 seed […]
Today many of my SC library friends engaged in a healthy discussion about the books that have mostly pictures, are roughly 32 pages (give or take), and have been maligned by teachers as “easy.” The conversation began with an innocent question: If you are in an Intermediate school, 4th and 5th grade, do you have an Easy […]
I really want principals and administrators to see this. Some teachers and even librarians need it too–as a reminder or as inspiration. It would be awesome if SCASL could make one of these too.
