November 20th

The library has been very busy this week. Lots of classes scheduling in for computers and books. We now have a set of Chromebooks for classes to use. This has increased the number of students. The library can provide technology for 5 classes during any given class period. Being able to provide service to 150 students at any given time during the day is a huge success for us. This of course doesn't mean that we are not checking out books.

Circulation is up 23% this year. I have always believed that the secret to getting students to check out books is to simply get them where the books are. This is why we place libraries in classrooms. Next week is our big buying trip to Barnes & Noble. My aides are very excited about going.
