A community for teacher-librarians and other educators

I'm just not yet into the habit of blogging. I tend to "talk" more in person and believe me I have lots to say.

This year I enjoyed the company of a new 1/2 library assistant (first time ever at my school) as well as the invaluable services of a 1/2 to full-time volunteer. It was like the library had a STAFF of 3 people.

We enjoyed greatly increased and enhanced library programming. I think our best efforts were in the PR realm. We made displays, showcased books for reading and helped students better learn how to use the library for themselves.

The schedule last year was really pretty good. I liked it and came to depend upon it strongly. Now, I wait to see if the schedule has been changed for next year. Hmmmm..... I have this feeling that "library" just gets tossed in after all the other hard schedule crunching happens. Well, I think I'll just be glad that I enjoy flex-scheduling. When August gets here I'll just become creative all over again. Isn't that how each year always begins?

Enjoy your summer. I plan to read, garden, cook and clean clutter from my house!!!
