We have been getting our library ready for Back-to-School Night and the first days of school. Jessica, Diana and I can't wait to greet all of the students, teachers and families next week as we kick off an amazing new year in the Van Meter Library. 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. In the past, I have created little business sized cards to hand out at the beginning of the year to everyone. 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. On her blog, Tiffany wrote about and shared the most adorable bookmarks to kick off her year too. I loved being able to use Bitmoji to create our friendmoji for our brand new library bookmarks. We ordered our bookmarks from like Tiffany did.
