I wanted to write a little thought to this article: http://www.slj.com/2015/05/students/how-to-run-a-library-volunteer-program-that-students-love/.
This article caught my eye right away. Knowing that in the future it will be unlikely that I will have assistants, this is really a nice way to get students involved, and have some ownership over the library. Not being in a school currently, there is no way for me to actually implement this idea. But, I wanted to keep it for reference. The points that the author makes really struck me, and I know that depending on where I land, this would be a nice goal for the future.

So, speaking of Powtoons, I had forgotten I created this lovely little presentation on the roles of the school librarian. I really liked how this turned out. I really like Powtoons because it is simple to use, and the fact that even with the free version, there is a lot to work with, and doesn’t seem to be a limit to how long it is (such as 30 seconds for some applications). This was done for the Information Technology in the Media Center course.
One assignment I had for my Library Materials for Children and Youth class was to do a book talk for a book I had read. I, like many of my peers, went one step farther, and created a book trailer. So, without further ado, here is my book trailer for The Rules for Disappearing.
