This week in The Library@HHS was COLD! Who knew that it could get to -1 degrees in Alabama?!
School was delayed by an hour for students but The Library@HHS was open as usual for students to work on assignments, catch up with friends after the holiday break, and come in out of the cold while waiting for the delayed start of school.
New Year - New Display:
We like to change out our displays in the library quite often. Library displays play an important part of encouraging students to check out books and to make the library attractive to patrons. The Library@HHS is happy with it's Dewey Decimal shelving of books, but I have been adversely influenced by Genrefication Librarians Elissa Malespina, Sherry Gick, and Tiffany Whitehead; thus I choose to throw in a bit of genrefication with a ReadBox Display.
I came into the library over the holiday break to create this display. I wanted to know how long making the display would take without being interrupted (students, teachers, admin, phone calls, fire drills, etc) so I set my stopwatch when I walked in the door and got to work. It took 4 hours 27 minutes and 55 seconds from start to finish to get the final result. The kids have really loved it so far and I have had to replenish the section of books several time already this week.
How do you promote reading in your library?
