LHS Library Fall 2014
August 2014 Orientation for Freshmen
The freshmen arrive at LHS for a few hours, a week prior to the first day. They come to the library to learn what they can accomplish here. They view a digital poster known as Glogster http://colonelslib.edu.glogster.com/library-orientation/ to discover how the library can help them complete a successful high school career.
Open Season begins September 10th
Full house as our 103 computers began buzzing. The ipad cart has made itself at home in the social studies classrooms. Social Studies classes frequently share ipads amongst themselves. Headphones are the must have this year.
Open Monday-Tuesday-Thursday 7:30 AM to 3:15 PM. Wednesday till 2:45 PM and Friday till 2:15 PM, including both lunch waves.
English 11 Short Story Thesis
Collaborated with 11th grade English classes and ran a 'Speed Dating with Short Stories'. It brought a fresh face to locating a short story for further critical study. The librarian spent entire blocks with 11 English classes after having pulled 100 anthologies with 300 specific stories tagged and ready for a quick read.
Business Club Event
Arranged space on the library calendar so the Business Club could host a speaker from Men's Warehouse discussing interview skills.
