Teen Read Week 2010

It has been ages since I posted in this blog. Is anyone still out there? All of my energies are used on our school blog and this poor blog is left all alone. Wanted to share our fun Teen Read Week opening day activities. Since the theme for Teen Read Week is Books with beat@your library, we decided to kick off the week with a dance. So much fun!!! Our students have been dancing, checking out books and taking pictures with favorite books.

Eclipse Review

As much as I have enjoyed the last two Twilight movies, Eclipse is my favorite so far. Seems I am not alone.

Texas Library Conference

Once again I had a great time at the Texas Library Conference. The authors were all great and the sessions were very helpful. Often there are two or three sessions at the same time that sound so interesting deciding which to attend is getting more difficult every year. The only session that was very disappointing was one on Facebook and your Library. Almost everyone in the session had a facebook account and like me were interested in starting a page for our libraries. I had so many questions, and unfortunately none were answered. The presenter proceeded to show us how to set up personal pages which had nothing to do with what any of us wanted. The frustration in the room was obvious and many people walked out of the session. This was especially disappointing to me because there was another session at the same time that I could have attended and didn't so I could learn how to set up an account for my library. Oh well, I have the summer to figure it out.
Getting Suzanne Collins autograph turned out to be another adventure as we were told she would only sign 200 autographs. Wristbands were given out at the authors signing area and people, including myself, were literally running to be one of the 200. You could hear the huffing and the puffing once we all got in line. It was all fun and then we all had a chance to visit with each other and share our library stories.
Until next year, see y'all in Austin.

New Toy

Look at our new toy!!! It takes so little to make me happy and this has definitely made me happy. We have a new ceiling mounted video projector and are looking forward to trying it out. No more lugging out the cart with the laptop and the projector and trying to squeeze in between the library tables. Our hook up is easy to access and will not interfere in any way with our ceiling screen. This will truly facilitate Freshmen orientation and all the other presentations that we do with classes throughout the year. Another added bonus is the new speakers that have been installed for "surround sound". Thank you Mrs. Guajardo and Mr. Hinojosa for always thinking of the library. You guys are great.

Our library sponsored our annual Create Your Own Valentine Card Contest. Once again we had quite a few entries. Our Art teachers, Mr. Trejo and Mr. Estrada were the judges and both commented on the variety of entries and the creativity of the cards. Thanks again to everyone who participated and congratulations to our winners. Pictures of our students with their cards and prizes will be posted here soon.
