Check Out Our New Look!!

For at least the past 10 years,the DCG Middle School library has retained the same look with very little variation: fiction on one side of the room,nonfiction on the other;desktop computers running the center of the room essentially splitting the room in half.




是时候“走步with our school theme and Dream Big in the library!上个月,we've been talking with the principal and IT director--as well as the custodians--about reconfiguring the furniture and desktops.One of our goals was to allow more students to easily view the projection screen.(你能在上面的图中看到它悬挂在天花板上吗?非小说方面”房间里的什么?)另一个目标是改善交通流量,几乎每天进出图书馆的人和移动笔记本推车。

我们最初的希望是创建4个pods,每个pods包含2个表。Below are pictures showing our progress toward that effort:




Remember that expression about"best laid plans?"Well,当我们发现电源线的长度和地板插座的位置不符合我们希望的安排时,我们就是这样。And that's when the principal strolled in and offered what became Plan B--rather than pods,为什么不把桌子做成V"形状?This allowed us to make the most of our outlet placement and cords,as well as equalize the size of the two sides of the space.以下是正在进行的工作:



所以在4小时以上的绘图之后,拖曳,推,牵引,crawling,滑行,我们为我们的许多桌子和台式电脑做了一个新的安排。We couldn't be happier with the setup,每一个来看我们做了什么的学生和工作人员都只有积极的事情要说!!





许多,多谢我们出色的图书馆助理,夫人。霍华德,他帮我们搬了所有的东西,计划了我们的家具布置!也,非常感谢你。Hlas who suggested our now-in-place Plan B,还有我们的保管人,他们帮助吸尘,并提供了一个快速拉锁课程!!

在Twitter上与作者和其他人联系

2013年1月底,我加入Twitter是为了扩大我的同事圈子,并与我所在领域的其他人建立联系。这是多么美好的一年!我不仅遇到了来自全国各地和世界各地的优秀图书馆老师!--but I've also been surprised and pleased with the interactions with authors and others.

在过去的14个月里,many authors have replied to tweets,like David Baldacci,年代。A.Bodeen,and Jeff Hirsch:



One of my favorite interactions has been with the author of The Ascendence TrilogyJennifer Nielsen.

Another interaction that was meaningful to me and many students came from Laurie Halse Anderson when she saw the resilience literature work students completed earlier in the year--you can read about it 酒店雇员和饭馆雇员.

And it's not just authors who tweet responses.像epic reads和heartland aea11这样的网站都有关注twitter feed的人,他们回答说:太!!


Twitter是一个很好的工具,我们可以与作者和其他与我们的工作和阅读相关的人联系。我们渴望再次建立联系!!
