I have interesting photos from magazines - odd things or mind bender puzzles on the reference desk. When the students are waiting they often read the captions and talk about the weird things they see.

28/01/2016 16:28:50Students create the library bulletin boards.
I approach them individually usually with an idea already in mind. We then begin to work together.
We formed a library learning commons committee made up of teachers from all different subject areas and the principal. Lots of great conversations in this committee.
I make a point of visiting every department during our PLC time at least once every two months.
I Love to Read Month: Blind Date with a Book. Students chose a book, created clues about the book, wrapped it in blank white or red paper, decorated it (I bought some Valentine stickers), wrote the clues and the barcode on the cover. We then placed all the books in a display for anyone to sign out.
I always invite student clubs to use the library.
We have a Google site that we place student work. I also create sites for various project work.
They make the bulletin boards. Post on the library website; tweet about it.

We have a well-travelled space outside the library for showcasing student work. I would love to use our book display spaces for student-curated collections of recommendations, on a theme, etc.
Quiet space, collaboration space and access to tech and printing are key. Great collaborative relationships with our teachers help. I always let staff know if I have a new book they might be interested in for themselves, their assessments, leisure reading.
Our school's course management system provides a great place for the library to post book news, reviews, reading ideas and have those conversations with staff and students.
This is a challenge. There are still disciplines that don't use us. How do you engage the math teachers?

Posting them connecting them with other people who are interested within the school
Ask students to ask their teachers, use resource bait in teacher mailboxes unsolicited, find something they dislike doing and provide support or do it for the classroom teacher. Use announcements and newsletters to let students know about the offerings in the library. Give out bookmarks with password to our database so they can take them home and use us 24/7. Provide tech support. For anyone
What are you working on? How are you doing? What can I do for you? How can I help you today? What resources are you looking for?
By continous outreach and marketing. Flexible scheduling purposefully creating opportunities for inclusion
I ran student vote for the school and created volunteer opportunities while doing soOnline presence is a disaster in our board
Beginning a maker space. I encourage risk taking for students and I am pushing teachers to offer more choice in the learning process. I provide supports
Tweet. Announcements
Connect with media

Padlet - but we need to work on it - thank for the heads up - my evaluation is next year.
They just come. We are fortunate. If we have a cancellation, we phone staff who have asked for time in the library as we are not on-line for booking. Sometimes, students on their lunch or spare are turned away because of the number of students in the space or class activities - not received well - but our library space is large - it invites creativity - the space
After teaching has taken place, students working away, engage teacher in trying/using the tech tools/apps - - need to really read the teacher and prompt
This needs work. Organized departments are dominating.
Manage their Learning Management System as Google Classroom (TL creates and manages/marks as required, Subject-Teacher is invited)
Team teaching. Team marking. Team*
Staff in school - Share documents with resource links on what Subject Teacher wants or our suggestions. - Provide support in what they need.
Keeping presentation platforms open but provide suggestions as required.
We don't. We need too. Great ideas presented! Thank you.

Family read in during the school day. Students, teachers and families all fill the school hallways and read aloud together.
