Hey,

   I was wondering if anyone had received the Logo Usage yet for TRW and DG? I know there was an email a few weeks ago on TRW materials and graphics, but has anyone received the PNGs or JPEGs for these logos? Thanks in advance!

Hi Brittany,

You're right! I forgot to send them out with the call notes, my mistake! I just sent them in a email to you all. Sorry about that, but thanks for the reminder!

Hey everyone, 

I hope the grant planning process has been going well. I had a prelimary meeting with the teen staff last week and will be taking fleshed out ideas of the grant programming to our department manager. I am really excited to see what we get approved for and can’t wait to share the details on Wednesday with this group. While all the programming of the grant proposal shall happen - we are looking to enhance and ameliorate our original proposal. However, one exciting facet is the “donation or sponsorship” of 4 game access codes for Space Engineers on STEAM.  They are such a lovely company. The game will fit into our “build a spaceship” program as an extra feature. For a demo of the  game check out it here

However, the game is so high tech; there is some concern about having high powered and technologically advanced enough equipment to play it. There is some hope with two new laptops coming in... will keep you all updated.

How is everyone else’s planning going? 

Planning is going well! I have my astronomer and author booked (Tuesday and Wed of TRW) and am still choosing the book for the book club. We are paying an additional $1000 to the author visit since it will now be a full day thanks to the grant!

Is there a way I can get a copy of my original grant application emailed to me? I just found out that the school system requires that to be on file before deposits can be made...and THANK YOU- the check arrived today!  

Hi,

  The check arrived as well for us too! Super exciting! I have been working on promotional materials and was wondering if there was allowance - if anyone knew- on using the banner design in our flyers and designs? I love the banner design so much and I use Canva which is where this draft flyer was created.

Hello all! I am entering my 4th year as a high school librarian at Tarrant High School in Tarrant, AL. I serve a population of 7th-12th grade students that all come from impoverished homes. I like to think outside of the box and push creativity in education. I love collaborating with classrooms and creating fun learning experiences for our students. With this grant money, I am planning on doing a school-wide read of Jason Reynold's Long Way Down, which is extremely relevant to my students' every day lives. They will listen to/read the book in class and write a reactionary poem/rap. Their work will be entered into a poetry/rap slam contest. 

Unfortunately the state has scheduled mandatory testing during Teen Read Week, so we will be doing our school-wide read the following week, but everyone is excited about focusing on reading and writing and story-telling with a story that will get to the heart of our community.

Do You Speak Game?

At the White Oak Library District, I helped work on my library’s district wide strategic plan. The one place I knew we were failing our patrons was with families who were learning English as a second language. We always talk about ways to better serve our patrons in this aspect… Continue reading
