Teachers’ Library Meeting
As you can read in earlier posts, our volunteer team put forth a herculean effort and got four rooms ready as libraries for 4 of our primary schools. It is important to us that the libraries are functioning well and available to all the students and communities which they serve. To this end Lynn and I invited two staff members (teachers and administrators) from each of the four schools to come for lunch and to discuss ideas on the use of the libraries.
It was a very productive meeting where the teachers came up with great ideas related to scheduling time during the day to make sure all students have library access, supervision in the libraries, community access to the libraries. Future needs to expand the concept of a library into a ‘resource centre’ were also discussed.
