Notes from the Black Lagoon

Posts Tagged ‘Summer Reading

So it’s been a really long time since I’ve updated this blog!  Summer reading has taken over, along with other happy events in my personal life.  Things are busier than ever here at the library, and while we’ve enjoyed our summer, I think everyone on staff will breathe a sigh of relief when school begins in September.

It’s a jungle in here, especially with our “Wild Reads” summer reading theme.  Thanks to an awesome and creative part-timer, our room has been completely transformed into an animal-filled jungle scene, complete with waterfalls and butterflies (not real, of course).  We’ve also had major success with our streamlined summer reading program and have had nearly 200 kids sign up!  As I mentioned before, we are raffling off books as weekly prizes.  Kids earn raffle tickets by checking out books.  This portion of the program has been a huge success and has allowed us to move away from the cheap plastic toys that held back our registration numbers.

So all is well in the jungle.  Now that I’m back, I’m going to try and do this blogging thing more consistently.  We’ll see how it goes…
