What a jam packed, fun filled day.
After the TAB meeting last night I begged AM to let me go with her on her School visits this morning to a middle school. Gratefully, I didn't have to beg hard because she said "yes!" right away. So this morning was started bright and early at a local middle school. This time, she got to set up in the library and had 30 minutes each with four seperate classes. I was lucky that I was able to stay for the first three and play tech support. Each visit went well and better then the one before it. She started off by introducing the library and herself, then went straight into our summer reading program with how to sign up and how to get a library card. After going over all the different examples that would count towards summer reading, she did a few book talks on titles and then ended with a review quiz. She had examples of all types of materials (playaway, magazine, manga, graphic novel, fiction and nonfiction). I will be adding a few books to my own want to read list as a result (The Adoration of Jenna Fox, Wicked Lovely, Graceling and Voices with Dragons).
After leaving the middle school, I spent a good deal of time on desk before going over to NP for another meeting of the Northside TAB. It was a good meeting with plans being finalized for the Summer Reading Kick off Beach Party next week and then brainstorming for events six months down the road. After going to the TW TAB the night before, it really made some of the differences in the two stand out more at this second meeting.
It was a long day, but oh so worth it!
