W-FL BOCES SLS Newsletter

September 2, 2015

Welcome back to school!

Here's to a great beginning of the year! As we look ahead to the 2015-2016 school year, the W-FL BOCES School Library System seeks to support the librarians, students, teachers and districts within W-FL BOCES region with ongoing professional development opportunities, technology training, collaborative communication and shared decision making through our SLS Council.

It's been a little over a year since I've stepped into the role of SLS Director, and I look forward to continuing to strengthen relationships through school visits, meetings, and participation in professional organizations. I'd love to be a guest reader in your library or come to special library and/or school events!

In an effort to improve communication, this is the first digital newsletter of many for the 2015-2016 school year, which I hope will keep you up-to-date of all the latest and greatest at SLS. Each of you will also have the opportunity to create and share your own digital newsletters for your library with your own Smore account....more information below!

Best of luck in this new school year! As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or wonderful ideas :)

Library quote....

“Harry — I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!”
And she sprinted away, up the stairs.
What does she understand?” said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.
“Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head.
“But why’s she got to go to the library?”
“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.” http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/library
