On the school front, we’re pushing the public library’s summer reading program for teens. It sounds so cool and I love their logo so much —  i soooo want a tshirt.  Too bad I don’t qualify. I think I’ll crash their kickoff party anyway to see if I can score a shirt. After all I […]

In mid April one of my English teachers had her AP Lit students create propaganda pieces as a component of the novel study of George Orwell’s 1984. I blogged about it here.  First impressions can be so deceiving, as though I came to the class to see them and even agreed to display them in […]

SCASL allowed my committee (the Information Technology Committee) to sponsor a Learning Commons at conference.  We took it upon ourselves to advertise, solicit volunteers for presentations, and make it a go. We wanted to loosely base it off the one I had seen and experienced first hand at AASL in Minneapolis, MN in October.  I […]

I know after my last post some wanted to know how our virtual book club went. I must say while some in the group experienced serious technical glitches, we seemed to have very few. We could hear and we could see.  There were times where feedback from some of the groups was a problem–not sure […]

I am somewhat depressed today as I have been number crunching this weekend.  It is time for my monthly library report, so this month I thought I’d include statistics from our state book award program. Votes were cast at my school Feb 28-29, and all votes in the state had to be submitted via Survey […]

In my area, recently a librarian was asking for cost effective management solutions to class novel sets. There was a general reluctance to add them to the library management program (in this case Destiny.)
