Happy New Year!


Welcome back, we hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer.  We wanted to send out a few pieces of information:


1.       Joining our department is Diane Sciabbarrasi ( who will be assisting with clerical duties.  Diane will be taking over InterLibrary Loan requests and also loading content onto the iPod Shuffle Audio Books.

2.       Please save the date of October 8 for Jane Reeves’ retirement celebration to be held at Rohbachs on Buffalo Road.  More information to follow.

3.       Patti Rose is working on updating usernames and passwords for our online resources.  When she is finished all Online Databases, Media Portal, and NOVELny will each have the same username and password. 

·         Note, eBooks are not changing

·         We are down to five vendors to update the information:

                                                               i.      Tumblebooks

                                                             ii.      Scholastic

                                                            iii.      ProQuest

                                                           iv.      BrainPop

                                                             v.      World Book

·         Our hope is to have all of them updated by the end of the week- stay tuned!

4.       Once all the usernames and passwords are updated we will be sending out the Online Access information.  If you need this information before the end of the week, please email Jim Belair.

5.       The following is a listing of new librarians/new placements for librarians in our region:

·         Churchville Chili Chestnut Ridge: Susan Meck

6.       Last year Monroe #1 and Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES sponsored a full day workshop with Dr. Barbara Stripling focused on Inquiry.  This workshop was very popular and registration filled early.  We are pleased to announce Dr. Stripling will be doing a repeat performance of this workshop on September 24, 2015 at Monroe #1 BOCES located at 15 Linden Ave.  Ideally, we would suggest that a teacher and librarian plan on attending together.
