Brownies and browsing and books, oh my!

First 6 Weeks: Part 3
One September activity that has gone a long way in building good will with my staff is to invite them in to see all the new books after we’ve processed them and before we circulate them to students. We set up Barnes & Noble style with distinct areas for certain genres and we provide brownies as a treat. We offer a morning slot and an afternoon slot to accommodate the specials schedule so everyone has a chance to drop by. We have clipboards out and a form teachers can fill out listing books (with call numbers) that they might want to sign out at some point. If I purchased a book with a particular teacher or team in mind I’m sure to put a sticky note on it and usher them right over to it. And of course I’m happy to recommend great read-alouds while I have a captive audience!
