A return visit - La Jolla Country Day School

Some of you met Mrs Xuereb (on the left in this photo), a Library Media Specialist from this school who visited us in June. I called on her at her school in San Diego on my way back to Australia. First, it is a private school and also a very special school. There are 2 libraries and 3 Teacher librarians. What did I like?
  • The way their computers were installed on tables. Took little room and easy access. There were 50 computers for students to use in the library.

  • The way the prizewinning books were shelved at the entry to the library.

  • The tables were organised for seniors to use at any time.

    That amazing lounge space for quiet reading. It had amazing windows and views.

    The reading competition. What I liked was so many students actually completed this. I think the prize was a barbacue. Sounds good to me!

    What I DIDNT like, was my hard disk corruption and I lost all the photos.
    I also LOVED the bright pink bits in Mrs Xeureb's hair and had arranged to have my hair done too, so I also didnt like having to cancel because another appointment was more important. (Sigh!)
    So many good things and I have no pictures!

    Mrs R, who is now safely back at work with a head full of ideas!
