If I HAD an ACTIV-board, I would gladly collaborate with you and we could share flip charts! Alas, I am not one of the privileged ones. However, I'll be in our training on the 10th, sitting there, and acting not at all bitter... no, not at all...

You know, I can honestly say I've never really thought about what is required to get libraries ready for the start of school. But now that you made a list, I can only imagine it involves a LOT.

I did a 13 list too, for the first time. Not sure if it follows the concept, but we'll see.

Finally! I can't wait for school to start and my son to go back. I feel sorry for all those who work in schools. Don't know how you do it, but thank goodness you do!

So sad...but there's always fall to look forward to!

Thanks for visiting my list, I appreciate it.I'm still in awe in all that you need to get ready. I hope it is coming along nicely.

I just read a book that made me think of you...The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians. Have you read it? If not, you should!
