December Librarian's Meeting

Tuesday, December 15th

1:00-3:30

Lone Star High School


Our annual December meeting is always fun and festive! This one will be no different. Yummy sweets will be provided - please bring your own drink. We're also going to have a book swap and book share time.


Please note the earlier start time of 1:00!


Book Swap (optional):

Bring a book and take a book. Bring a gently used book that you'd like to share with someone else and take a different one home with you. This is a great way to get something new and clean off your bookshelf, too!


Book Share (optional):

Read a great book lately that you're dying to talk about? If so, bring it with you and be prepared to share it with the group.


Other topics on the agenda:

Inventory using LS2

Toot your own horn!

Got something great going on in your library? Doing a cool lesson with a class? I'd love to see it! Please let me know whenever you've got something going on that you'd like me to see. I will make every effort to attend. It's my goal to get to 1/2 of the schools every year even if it's only a quick trip, but I'd love to see something fun you're doing.

Spotlight on...Elliott Elementary

Megan Tumulty and the literacy team at Elliott recently hosted a family reading night. Families showed up in their PJs with books and read together. Dr. Lyon surprised all the families as the special mystery reader. Afterwards, book-themed hot chocolate was served.
