    Hi Sarah,
    How do you keep up with the latest series your students are interested in?
    Do you have Accelerated Reading at your school?
    How do you stay on top of technology?
    What size of library do you have?

    Blessings,
    Dodie

      Hi Dodie,
      A lot of the series I order are based on student and teacher recommendations. I also look through the Scholastic Book Fairs when we have them and look on other library websites, etc. to find out what is popular. We do not have Accelerated Reader at our school. For technology, I attend the annual WEMTA conference in our state to get ideas from tech people and other teachers and librarians. I also take classes and workshops throughout the year. I think the best ideas come from networking with other people who do what we do! To answer your last question, we have 280 students at our school, and my library collection is about 11,000 books. We have many different devices such as iPads, Chromebooks and Netbooks and one computer lab with desktop computers. I hope these answers were helpful to you!

    Hello Sarah,

    Your comments caught my interest for a couple of reasons. The wearing many hats is so true for our library. We are trying to revitalize a very small library in our town. We have a great group of volunteers and a super board! I am the director at this time. Also, your ideas if the sky was the limit, we would also like to have a lounge area, room for makerspace activities, more technology and sky lights would be awesome! Thanks for sharing!
