Sunshine and family time won out over blogging in the past weeks. I kept up with my 15 minutes a day. I read Twitter and Google reader. I thought about many things. I continued to think about building my PLN. Now that school has started again it is time to get back to it.
Last week I spent many hours preparing the library for students and planning for the months ahead. The last of the books returned in June have finally made their way back to their homes and we are ready to begin once more.
Today I saw three groups of students. We talked about how to care for our library and best of all about books. Everyone is excited to get in and pick books out. Students were asking to put holds on the books they had just heard about. I also had a slew of volunteers for this year’s library club. The only thing getting in the way is the new computer program so the library cards can be made.
I love to see the excitement in the kids eyes as they discover a book that speaks to them. That’s just one of the great things about my job. That’s one great reason for continuing to build my PLN.
