Western Middle SFA Library

Term 1, 2015

Visit our website!

The WMSFA Library website will be changing this year to a form preferred by Library Media Services. I will be receiving training in the use of a platform called "LibGuides" next week, and I'll try to have the new website up quickly! The old website is still available but has not been updated.

Whew!

This first 6 weeks of school has been SO BUSY! Mrs. Roseberry was out until September 8, so I was on my own for almost a month. It's been so much fun to meet our new sixth grade students, and to see all of our old friends again. I truly missed these folks over the summer! Circulation is way up; in the first month of school, we checked out or renewed some 1,300 books!

What's been keeping us busy?

  • We received $1500 worth of new books that needed to be processed, as well as gifts of another 15 or 20 books.
  • Set up book displays for new books, and new paperback books.
  • Conducted orientations for all language arts classes, and scheduled regular library times.
  • Set up display for Kentucky Bluegrass Award nominees.
  • Finished labeling already-weeded shelves.
  • Had READ posters made.
  • Acquired new class sets of books from other schools and our own book room (still working on getting them into Library World
Our top library patrons for Term 1 were:

6th grade: Morgan B.

7th grade: Thung O.

8th grade: Kentrell R.


Next term: See how many biographies you can read!

Plans for Term 2

  • Plan and implement Halloween Book Exchange.
  • Start "Bingo for Book Fair Bucks!"
  • Continue weeding the biographies and 900s.
  • Continue labeling weeded shelves.
  • Send out lists of new books to teachers.
  • Book fair in November.
