We recently held the annual Elementary Library Book Walk!
Elementary Media Clerks came by appointment to individually browse a collection of new and well-reviewed releases in children’s literature curated by Marci Bishop, Elementary District Library Specialist. This year the books were set on display throughout the Educational Technology office spaces by Marci and assistant Debbie Singer.
The Book Walk included 2020 releases in picture books, children’s fiction, children’s nonfiction, graphic novels, and more. Media clerks used the browsing opportunity to plan new purchases for school libraries, discover read-aloud options, find titles to recommend to students, and more.
Each school was able to pick four books from the collection, which will be sent to their library at the end of the book walk.
