Early Morning Library
The busiest time of my day was my Early
Morning Library Program. It attracted an unbelievable number of
students. During this time they were able to borrow or return
books, read books & magazines (another “no no” to many other
librarians were the video game and popular entertainment
magazines I ordered. It was hard to keep those magazines in the
library. The children loved reading them!).
I also organized peer help for those
students struggling with their homework assignments.
It was a good time for the students to work
on school projects and reports. The students gathered around
library tables or the couches I had.
I had all the computers used during this
time. The children were restricted to the library website which
was my idea for a virtual warehouse of educational sites in all
