You've Been Virtually Book'd With These 18 Books For School Library Month! Check Out This List & Choice Board From Titlewave Here, Friends.


We celebrate School Library Month in April. It's one of the best months of the year! 

You can read all about School Library Month on the AASL website here.
This is a very special for us as school librarians, and for our communities, students, teachers and families too.  The impact that we make as school librarians make a difference not only during April, but all throughout the year.  And one of the ways we impact our communities the most is through books, reading and the joy that these bring. 

As we celebrate School Library Month, I brought together 18 books that celebrate reading, books and libraries.  

Let me show you how I set up this choice board for my school community. 

First, I created the choice board in a Google Slide.  I added the covers of the 18 School Library Month books I included in this choice board. 

Second, I went to our Destiny Discover and...

...grabbed the links to each book.   

This is easy to do.  You just search for the book, click on the three little dots next to Open, and this drop down menu will appear. 
Click on Share and the link to the book will pop up. That is the url to share in the choice boards. 
Take the copied link and add it to the book cover.  

When every book cover is linked, you are ready to share the choice board. 
Go to File and down to Publish to the web.  
This will give you a link to share with the students and teachers.  
When they click on that published link, the You've Been Virtually Book'd With Books For School Library Month choice board will pop up where they can read more about each book, and even read the eBooks where they are attached. 

I am excited about this list of 18 special new books I put together in Titlewave.  In this choice board, you can click on any book cover to view and find the full book list from Titlewave there too. 

If you would like to edit this and use for your own library, you can make a copy here.

Our students will love these books celebrating School Library Month that are part of our You've Been Virtually Book'd program. And I love how we can keep this program going all year long!  It brings so much joy to our readers each and every month.
