School Librarians' Day at Browns

I spent a day looking and purchasing books at Browns Books for Students in Preston. I still call it Askews! In the morning we had presentations from Browns on their ebook platform, then after a lovely M&S lunch I went book buying. This is the bit I love most. Although I order online I still like to see and touch the books!

Accelerated Reader

It's been a long time since my last post. At the end of summer we introduced AR to a small skills group which meant re-labeling all the library books! Still ongoing. This term has been "hit the ground running" and pupils in year 7 have still to sit reading and spelling tests before we can identify those for AR.
I am going book buying at the end of the month so need to weed and make lists too.
