Don't worry, I will keep this up going, but with just some changes

Life gets interesting at times, and this is one of them. I created this years ago to help keep Renton Junior High students reading while I was at the other 2 schools I was over at the district. Then 6 years ago, I was pulled from Renton completely to be at those 2 elementary schools instead, so I keep this up to help the students until money could be found to put me back there. Both students and teachers there use this.

Now do to more budget decisions by central office, the school district will not even have a librarian in it. Money for STEM was needed so something has to go. In Michigan, that usually means the librarian. Many schools in Michigan don't even have a librarian or even a room that can be called a library. Hard to believe if you don't live here, but yes that is the way it has been for years. I was lucky to be able to serve Huron students as long as I did.

So this will be changing some to met the needs of the students in the new library I will work. I am not sure right now where that will be, but I hope that books I will add will find their way to the original school library for students to use. I have been told how useful this blog is and seen how it is used so widely. Too much work has been put into this to stop now. I will still add only about 6 books a years so it doesn't become too big to use easily.
