I didn't get as many responses as I would have hoped...
But I did get responses. So, I decided to post pictures of the book responses on the windows outside my office. My office is by the exit so I hoped students would at least glance at it on their way out the door or look at it before they checked out a book.
After I sent the email out and started receiving responses, I thought to myself...what could I do the rest of the year to get students interested in reading books? I decided that I would have a monthly library theme. But what types of themes? The first place I went...Pinterest. Pinterest is one of those places where if you have an idea about something, 9 times out of 10, somebody else had too. And I was right!
I came up with an idea for each month of the school year so I will see how successful I am at not only keeping this up...but also, seeing what kinds of responses I'll get from students.
Wish me luck!
