This is going to be very brief.
It has been very busy in the library trying to get settled. I have made great strides in turning it into a workable space. I have also made progress on getting the library cards ready. Thankfully I had a little help yesterday with that.
I have begun processing the new books...have a long way to go, but luckily it is not a priority.
My real break though in getting prepared for this school year came in the form of an email from the lead librarian at another elementary school in the district. It included her cell phone number and the encouragement to call her with any questions I had. That was an absolute godsend to me! She came over to the school and spent about 4 hours with me helping to get me started.
