HELP!!!  I'm moving from an elementary school library where I've been for two years to the middle/high school library.  This will be the first year we do not have a certified librarian in the district - I am only a paraprofessional.  Any advice or websites you can recommend on how to get started with the older students?

The school year is not far away and it seems as though I will still be unemployed. Any ideas on keeping up with trends while out of work?

Hi, everyone!

Looking for something to do at your school for National Library Week? We would like to invite everyone to Freeze-n-Read 4 Libraries ! What began as a simple NLW activity for our school has grown into a library advocacy event we hope everyone who loves libraries will embrace. Libraries are critically important to the well being of our schools and communities...and they are in crisis. My student staff and I have created an easy way to help. Our website, explains the simple process (Promote, Freeze, Get Involved) and brings together in one place links to "cool" and "chilling" facts about libraries along with effective ways to bring about change. We include a blog to gather information about libraries in crisis, photo gallery for "Freezers" and a poll to document participation. My students and I are excited about the potential this has, but we need your help. Please ask your colleagues, friends and family to Vote 4 Libraries on the website and Freeze-n-Read in some way during National Library Week! ~Sincerely, Kathy Adams and the Freeze-n-Read Staff

Sorry, I meant your school tastes l might range a bit differently. My fingers get in the way.

I agree. I often find my 8th graders like novels, classics included. 2nd they have indicated on an 8th grade reading survey, they like magazines. 3rd they like books with humor. The all time favorites from 6-8th grades were the Potter series, Twilight, and Paulsen's books. Your school tastes might rage differently.

Some middle school kids are ready for adult books and others remain stuck in elementary choices. What you give an incoming 6th grader is very different from what you hand a graduating 8th grader.
