The Birth of Another Student Library Club!
I worked in one of the largest high schools in South Carolina for 14 years before my husband announced that we were moving to the Dallas area. As a reluctant mover, I first thought of my life, the students and teachers that I would leave behind. The Library Club had grown from a few students to a large dynamic group that LOVED to spend time in the library. Hugs were given to all, tears were shed by many and some students asked to be my friend on facebook. I quickly accepted a position in Dallas at an incredible private school and found yet another group of students congregating around me and the library. Because of distance and commuting time I took my 3rd library position in three years. After a month I again am convinced that this small school of 400 students is in need of a student library club. I like the name Library Advisory Crew and I call them The Crew for short. These students want to belong to a group and help. I have my hands full juggling the eagerness of many middle school students wanting to help during lunch or study hall but what a great opportunity for me to work on leadership skills, volunteerism and research skills. We have the birth of yet another student library club!
