When last we left out hero she was working on Library Girl's questions. So maybe hero is too strong a term but I have always wanted to use that phrase. So I am working on my online presence and growing my virtual PLN. So far so good. The encouragement from library girl did help.
Jennifer's question 8 is How will you dispel negative/outdated library stereotypes? Number one, I don't run a quiet library except when necessary. We talk about books sometimes quietly, sometimes with great gestures across the library. My media center has music playing. I leave the library. I help find resources. Not just books - resources. Ebooks through NCWiseowl, websites, primary source documents, audio clips, etc. Now I need to plan to collaborate regularly rather than letting it happen organically or by chance. Now I need to reach back out to the teachers who haven't let me help before at least one more time. I won't just create and deliver instruction, I will help assess. On a much lighter note, I will buy at least one pair of shoes that are not sensible since I simply must have my glasses and the occasional cardigan.
