First session was to orient students to all of the services
that the library provided, the rules and regulations of the
library and the circulation policy as well as when they could
use the library.
The second session covered how to find a book (Dewey
Decimal System) and the Reference Section.
The third session was a scavenger hunt per library table that
the children enjoyed. I also gave them a brief library quiz.
Each year I used to have a Library Orientation for all of the
new teachers in the building.
Teacher Resources by @GwynethJones (I wish all schools had a Daring
Librarian who created such a great resource for new teachers)

(Just before his retirement
I used to post the names of all honor roll
students each marking quarter. I used dark magic marker so the
names were easy to read. The children loved seeing their names
posted in the library!
I also posted any awards that students earned for their
academic excellence or good citizenship, arts education
recognitions and sports achievement.
I found the library to be an excellent venue for Cooperative
Learning projects. I had classes on all grade levels and
subject areas use the library for such projects.
