Tech Tools to Use: Padlet
Here in the LMC, we've used padlet to highlight our book club titles and would love to see some feedback on the 'wall!' http://padlet.com/GreenwichLMC/wewereliars
The inter-library loan process allows us to borrow books from the public library system, opening the door to a vast collection of resources that we'd otherwise not have access to because of our limited budget!

So...now we're looking for more used electronics (nothing too large or heavy!) and small hand tools (pliers, screwdrivers, rubber mallets, wrenches)!
