How is it already February?!? January, we barely knew thee.
There was a lot on tap in the library this week. In the upper school, we went to sophomore debates in chemistry classes, helped with junior poetry research, and attended Unity Day sessions. For the middle school, we read a handful of new sports books to prepare for the 8th grade book talks this week. (We got 59 checkouts from our 8th grade visits; not bad for 69 kids.) We also did a lot of reader’s advisory, for everything from “a book that everyone should read” to “a book about a woman who was the first to do something” to “a book with no boring parts.” Piece of cake. We had our first Battle of the Books lunch meeting, so that our teams could work out their reading strategies, and we made a display to go along with the Upper School’s Unity Day.
Today we enjoyed being snug in our library snow globe as the world turned white outside, and we worked on back office stuff – cataloging, budget, book orders, eBook updates, etc…
