I held my first book fair last week. I had to set the entire thing up by myself because my aide was out. I should have made arrangements to call someone for help. But, I didn't think it was going to be so very labor intensive. It took me a couple of days to recuperate. Next time, I will know better.
The fair itself went well. I need to figure out our profit to see how well.
During the fair, my aide returned....thank goodness. Because of this, I was able to introduce my Mobile Librarian Cart. Since the library was closed all week, students were unable to check out books. They could check them in, but we weren't able to shelve them. I took these books to classrooms, at prearranged times, with my laptop and scanner. Students and teachers loved the idea. Now, I need to shop for a better cart. Mine made too much noise and didn't have enough room.
