Loads of Book Display Ideas for Your School Library!

Spice up your library environment with tempting book displays. Students DO judge a book by its cover, so don't let them judge your library as dreary! Special H/T  to Library Girl Jennifer LaGarde for the terrific infographic.

You can find this post and a HUGE collection of resources for teacher-librarians HERE.

2016 School Libraries Work!

Scholastic has released its 2016 document, School Libraries Work! and I'm hoping all my library colleagues will download a copy.  It's important to note that the majority of administrators have no idea what we do every day as teacher-librarians, so it is up to us to let them know.

Always keep a log of what you do every hour of the day. I use a Google document and constantly add to it, inserting visuals for clarification. Don't risk forgetting how busy your day was!

My recommendation is to download a copy and use it to show your district how important school libraries are for our students. Here are some screen shots from the document:
