The good and the bad

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. […]

Library Displays at work

Last May in the last couple of weeks of school I printed out book covers to display “Required Reading” for our English and STEM classes. I had hoped students seeing the display would be reminded that yes, indeed, our school encourages (and even assigns) summer reading. I ran a book contest too back then, one […]

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 […]

I ran across this today in my Facebook timeline, posted by a friend and neighboring district’s teacher (Yvonne Mason). It is heartfelt and honest, and I loved it enough to share as she suggested.

Today’s Learner…of ANY AGE!!

I think this graphic I am borrowing from the Australian Teacher Librarian Network’s Facebook page says it all.  This not only should describe today’s students, but learners of all ages, including teachers, parents, administrators, and more…. I’m considering rendering a similar graphic in our library for a display, of course with student artwork.  Yes, it’s […]

The Library’s Final Four

We decided to do a “March Madness” book tournament at my school, basing our “Sweet Sixteen” on the top circulating books for the calendar year, February 2012 – February 2013.  The idea was shared from a neighboring library school intern at Spartanburg High.  We picked it up and ran with it, modifying it only slightly!

Here’s another great idea for a library display that goes along with March…or rather March Madness.  I swiped it from a librarian friend of mine, Susan R. Meyers who works in a neighboring district high school. Of course she credits her intern for the concept.  So go on over and read and see their set […]
