Library News, Summer Reading

Summer Checkout Success!

IMG_1193 (1)

The bookshelves are looking mighty bare in the ASIJ Elementary Library.  After three days of patrons visiting the library to checkout books for summer reading, the checkout statistics are phenomenal this year.  Without bribes, prizes or golden stickers, over 2x as many books were checked out this summer than last summer.

Total Summer Checkouts 2015 3,944 books

Total Summer Checkouts 2014 1,806 books

My goal this year was to support and encourage independent reading and wild readers.  I do not think I could have ended my first year as the ASIJ Elementary Librarian on a happier note.
