Its a great reading challenge in my view. Last year I did a different library challenge and I increased my use of the library. So this year I aim to read more books than I did in 2014.
Our local library gets better all the time. I hadn't taken too much notice of it in recent years, but notice the difference now.
They have online resources, ebooks to borrow, book club in a bag - with 10 books and guide questions and information about the author. They run activities for the children over school holidays. In the last few years Smart cards are a bonus, I can reserve a book from a group of libraries and it will be there on a shelf at my local library to pick up, with an email to advise me its there. I love that I can log in and check when books are due or I can renew them.
And I love that I can issue the books myself. Love self serve!
As a teacher I appreciate our local library - they give me one class card and we can visit once a fortnight and each student can take out a book or two on it. We also are given a longer time to have the book than the personal card. The children's librarians are prepared to talk to the students and teach them about various aspects of the library.
They also have a vast library of DVD's of movies and TV shows and CD's of many talking books. And as well I can borrow audio and ebooks when I want.
I am aiming for the Seasoned Level: 17 - 22 (I read at least 14 from the library in 2014)
And I have decided to also join Snagged at the library - it is actually going to make me extend out by 2! This is hosted by Geeky Blogger and The Book Nympho
