As we do this, a lot of what we are doing during those first few weeks is building community and sharing the important information about our library. We have created displays, signage, an online newsletter and new library website.
And this year we are also going to have an extra special new treat thanks to an idea from my friend and librarian Tiffany Whitehead.
If you haven't made your own friendmoji yet, read more about how to in this post I wrote.
We also added a QR code so they can easily scan it to "put the library in their pockets" on their devices too. I did add the url to our library site again underneath the QR code too.
Ohhhh and a nice little handy tip for your library site.....I bought vmbulldogslibrary.com from GoDaddy and then pointed the Google Site for the library to that special url. It makes it so much easier for everyone to remember since our school website is vmbulldogs.com.
We ordered our bookmarks from Overprints.com like Tiffany did. The biggest thing to check before you order are the dimensions and boarder around the outside edge. You don't want anything to be cut off.
Bring on a new year....We are excited, inspired and ready with one more tool for us to connect to our community in wonderful ways.
