The Columbus Metropolitan Library did not get to be the 2010 Library of the Year for no reason! I am constantly reminded of how lucky I am to have such a resource in my city.
This week, during library classes, each group was able to meet and learn from Miss Val, who runs the Homework Help Center in Dublin. Miss Val was able to meet each class, read some books and poems, and share information about the new Homework Help Center. The kids were all excited and I am sure many of our students will visit the Homework Help Center soon. Our students love knowing the librarians at the Dublin Branch. They love to see Miss Loren, Mr. George and Mr. Ray on their visits to the library. They will now know 4 people during their visits. The outreach they have done has really helped our kids get excited and feel welcome in the library.

in December. And she was right!
My big goal for the past three years as librarian at Riverside has been for my students to see the library as a hub for learning and thinking. A place full of resources and possibilities. A place where you are in charge of your own learning. The Homework Help Center and the other programs that our CML children's programs offer supports that message completely. I am excited about this opportunity for our students and our community!
