SO this week I'm back sharing my faves with a back to school theme! These are my Back to School Faves!!
The Follett Destiny App!
This is by far my most favorite thing about this new school year!! I have now been the librarian at my school for five years, and in all that time, the book scanner NEVER worked!! This week I was saved!! I downloaded the Follett Destiny App and can now quickly and easily check the students books out. And the students love watching me do it! !Seriously...have not stopped talking about this app since I got it! A Serious Life Saver!
Air Conditioning in the Library!!
This year, for the first time EVER, there's air conditioning in the library, and clearly I am loving it. And have used it as an excuse to already wear a scarf, sweater and my riding boots!! HA! It seems those these last few days, that my AC will be a thing of the past. Summer temps last week...winter temps this week!! Ugh!!
Scholastic Book orders!
This year I decided I really want to take the library to a whole new level. Thanks to the Follett App, I've been reinvigorated, and I want the library to be, too. I am weeding out super old books and making way for new ones. I am ordering new books for the library from Scholastic Book Clubs and having the older students order books through me as well, so I can rack up the bonus points and get free books for the library! I think I get more excited than the kids when the book box arrives!!
Happy Hours/Dinners with Teacher Friends
This year I've made steady plans to do monthly happy hours from school and dinners with teacher friends. Being single, I can do both these things...HA! Dinners with my mom teacher friends and Happy Hours once a month with my work friends. For me it a win-win!
The routine of it ALL!
It's no secret that I love summer, but being back at school, I am really enjoying the routine of it all. I am getting up and getting to school earlier than I have in the past and I'm really ok with it. I can get a lot don'e in the quiet early mornings. I also actually enjoy having somewhere to be every day! i am having a really good year so far and I'm grateful for that. I might still be counting down to Christmas vacation but...like it all the same!!
Woo! Thanks for letting me share these last few weeks with you!! Have a great weekend! Fingers crossed I can get some fun posts up to share next week!!
