Getting Ready for Sherwood Summer Library

Our apologies if the newsletter is a little thin this week.  Stacy and Courtney  have been sorting 16,000 books for our Sherwood Summer Library programs!  We are so excited to get these great titles in the hands of kids this summer.

Summer Librarians Series

I would love to keep our social media presence going all summer long.  If you would be so kind, please continue to send things my way!--Courtney

1)  If you are hosting summer library programs, send me pictures of the cool things you are doing with students, guest speakers, or projects.

2)  If you are curriculum writing, take a picture with your group or of the curriculum you are writing.

3)  If you are getting caught up on reading great books, send me a picture of you reading the book or send me an email with the title.

4)  If you are squeezing in any professional development, send me where you are going and what you are learning.

5)  Anything else you might be doing this summer that you will be able to use with students next year...
