National Library Week part 2

After a successful "Library of Yesteryear" program, we decided to celebrate the present with a lunch program called "Library of the 21st Century". This was also a great time to pull out our iPads/ iPods (we featured the Morpho app), e-books (Kindles), audio books, and print materials to remind the students of our numerous services. It was also a good time for library assistant, Mr. Ray Borel, to use his talent creating promotional posters to compare and contrast the previous program with the library of today. (You can see one of my favorites below this text!)

In addition to having various"stations" around the library showing off all our current technologies, we also invited students to make presentations. Several students brought their own laptops and showed their favorite OS (Windows 7 and Windows 8). A few brought laptops and played games! You can see the tables were full of technology users in the pictures below. We have only scratched the surface on what can be done during National Library Week... the sky is the limit!

As the school year begins to wind down, National Library Week is a great opportunity to revitalize interest in the school library program! It is also a wonderful time to celebrate the various roles of the Library Media Center!
