This is the first year I have even considered entering a contest.  But I am so proud of our students and the exciting projects they can do because of the technology integration we have strived for. It doesn't happen overnight but I think it is definitely worth the effort! I would be happy to share ideas.  Please vote for our school.  Thanks.Wilmington Friends Goes 1:1See More

"I keep my K-2 graphic novels next to the K-2 Leveled Readers. That way they know those books are okay for them. I also only let students check out 1 graphic novel per check-out."

Graphic Novels in K-5 library

I am wondering how you circulate your graphic novels.  We have created a separate shelving collection as we spend more dollars for this genre that has wide appeal for both genders and all types of readers.  Howver, I have not read them all and have noticed some are certainly for our 4-5th graders but not appropriate for first.  How do libraries handle this?  We are beginning to purchase first graphic novels for our younger students-but now have a shelving issue and also a spine label…See More

Greetings Kate,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
