This week was full mostly of scanning and weeding and more scanning and weeding. I finished the non-fiction section! I have 4 bookcases in the fiction section finished as well.
I spent about 2.5 hours Thursday processing out the weeded materials (is that the right phrase for that?) by deleting them from the system, removing the barcode and stamping Discarded in them. I am allowed to sell the discards and have a cart set up in the library with them for 25 cents each.
The 7th Amulet book came in and I have so many kids clamoring for it. I bought 2 copies for the elementary and 2 copies for the middle school and there is a waiting list for all of them. I love that I have brought in something that these kids can’t get enough of. I tried at the beginning of the year to get the elementary kids into the few graphic novels that we had in there but it wasn’t until I bought the Amulet books that really got their attention.
The 6th graders have been working on book reports this week (shoebox and puppets are a couple of the ways they can report on their book).
Spring break is next week and I think we are all ready for this break!
