National Library Week Part Two

The bad news: no pictures from last night's Break the Rules night.

The good news: the reason I didn't get any pictures was because I was so busy with students! Break the Rules night was a HUGE success! Each instructor talked it up in the classroom, so by the break time, all the students were really excited. I spent a good hour pouring punch and explaining our week-long scavenger hunt. I also had forms available for parents to fill out about a program our county provides that sends children a free book every month. So many parents were excited about that and signed up.

My favorite parts:

One student gave me a fist bump "for books"
Hearing a student say "Yay books!"
The excitement over the free books for kids program
Leaving last night and having a student call after me "Happy library day Miss Julie"
Feeling appreciated

Tonight I've got another Break the Rules night planned and I'm going into our composition class to play a trivia game about famous library scenes from movies.

PS: Check out an awesome post on my good friend Heather's site!
