    Our Meet the Teacher night will be coming up...what do you do as a Library Media Specialist for meet the teacher night?

    I was thinking maybe I'll make a powerpoint of pictures of the students in the LMC the first week and a half (which is when Meet the Teacher night is) and just leave it on continuous repeat on the projector.

    Of course I'll have some great book displays.

    I was thinking of making some sort of hand out for the parents...ANY IDEAS????

    It is appreciated :)

    Do you allow parents to check out books? Are videos available to children over the weekend?

    Does your school participate in Battle of the Books? Can you recruit that night and put out the book list?

    Do you participate in the AR program? Can you let parents know that they can help the library buy AR tests? Tell the parents about the program? Tell them that the books are also available in the public library?

    Who handles the book fair? Can you advertise for that or give parents an idea when it will occur? Have the PTA rep, if that's who does it, be present to work the parents for volunteering during the fair?

    Mention overdue rules? Tell what volunteer opportunities are available in the library? Shelving, check out rush times?

    There is always a Book Fair set up in our library on the night of our Meet the Teacher BBQ--it's a very busy place!
