Reading Gets Your Wheels Turning

The theme of the library this year is…READING GETS YOUR WHEELS TURNING…so, when students read a book, they fill out a reading ticket and then turn it in to their teacher (each teacher has a little box to hold all the tickets that are turned in.)

Then once a month when their class comes to library time…I will draw several reading tickets out of the classroom box, and then those students will get to spin the wheel.  They can win a book, a “prize” ( I got some free small toys from a company), a pencil, or sticker, depending on where the wheel stops.

SUU UELMA Boot Camp

Our second annual bootcamp was a great success with 45 attendees, more than double the number of participants from last year! School librarians as well as Librarian Paraprofessionals from all around Utah attended two days of training on the campus of SUU to gain valuable skills and network with fellow librarians.  A number of attendees even chose to stay in the dorms and got to experience the nostalgia of their college days.

Many thanks to Caitlin Gerrity of Sherratt Library at SUU and the presenters from SEDC, SUU,  and UEN who helped make this workshop a great success, and especially the UELMA Professional Development Committee. 

UELMA hopes to continue to be part in offering annual professional  development opportunities like the summer bootcamp.
