Last week, over 860 library books were checked out to students. That is in addition to over 300 textbooks. Over 325 students visited the media center throughout the week. Finally, information literacy and research lessons were taught in the library during ten separate class periods! It was a BUSY WEEK!
Adult volunteers really are A LOT lot of help! They shelve books, check in books from the book drop, and check out books to students. This is very helpful when I'm working with individual students and classes.
If you are an adult with an spare hour or two during the week who would like to be involved in your school community, please contact me. I can really use your help.
We've had a FANTASTIC first week of school! The students were treated to assemblies and short lessons on expected behavior throughout the building. We had several big winners for the Summer Reading Challenge: two students each won $25 gift cards in a raffle and two students each won a 4GB flashdrive/bracelet (valued at $20) for reading ALL of the EIGHT selected books!
Applications are currently being accepted by students who wish to be a library helper, or a member of the Teen Advisory Board and WOLF TV ( both of which are new this year). Teen Advisory Board members will help with library programming, collection development, and Maker Mondays (part of our new Maker Space!).
Any parent or community member interested in helping out in the library can contact me via email or phone. I'm ALWAYS in need of volunteers so don't be shy!!!
