Library Nazi's

Today we were told that we were doing a horrible job. That we were the reason so many kids were skipping class, to hang out in the library and we had to monitor every kid for passes all day. So, we decided to become Library Nazi's. So that took up a lot of time today constantly checking up on kids, making sure they signed in, had a pass or release card, not our cup of tea, but that's the way it goes. I finished up processing in the Personal Fitness books today that came in before school started. Processed in Friday Night Lights that came in from West HS for a couple of classes. I worked with my Vision program, redesigned the blank screen copy and worked with it a bit to get it up and running again. Boxed up 30 Physical Science with Earth Science to send out to North HS. Sent an email to Mr. S our principal about the American Pageant books we have and that we need a few more. Follett had some new ones on the way for $121 a piece, but they were getting in some used for only $97 and I wanted to put a hold on five for us since we still have 3-5 students that need a copy. Mr. S asked us to look into online access instead of books, so I sent an email asking our rep if that text did indeed have an online version. Hopefully I'll get an answer tomorrow.
