What do you want to know? (In which Abby is a total copycat.)

Sarah of The Reading Zone recently asked her readers what questions they had for her about her reading & writing workshops in her classroom. She got a ton of great questions from other teachers (and a random one from me) and I think it's a great idea. So I'm stealing it.

What questions do you have for me? What are you wondering about public libraries? Programming? Library school? Etc.?

Post your questions in the comments and I'll be happy to answer them.

And as a side note, thanks for all the input on the What Librarians Want You to Know... posts! I'm working on a couple more posts for that series that'll be up soon.

I love being a copycat! It's how my blog rolls pretty much.

QUESTION: Do you guys circulate the 39 Clues books @ your library? ::chuckles at pun, then realizes no one found it funny... moving along:: If so, what do you do with the cards? We don't have them at my current (old?) position and I wasn't sure how to go about doing anything with them. Thoughts?

Kristi(e), We do have the 39 Clues books at my library and we had them at my previous library, too. We took the cards out and circ them without the cards, but I'm not sure what they've done with the actual cards. I think they probably throw them away (or, well, recycle them if possible). I haven't really heard anything from kids about collecting/trading/doing anything with the cards, but if you didn't want to throw them out I wonder if they would make a good prize. You could do a drawing for them, as part of your SRC or just any time in your library.
