Today's Member of the Week is Charlotte Martin. Charlotte works at Treadwell Elementary School in Memphis, TN. She has been a school librarian for 7 years.
We asked Charlotte some questions about her experience as a school librarian and we would like to share them with you.
What's your favorite thing about your job as a school librarian?
Introducing students to new books they will enjoy reading, and reading aloud to the little ones.
Name one children's book that you couldn't live without in your library.
Tell us why you decided to join the Elementary Librarian Community. What's your favorite thing about it?
To have access to new ideas and lesson plans. My favorite thing is the lesson plans - and the email notices.
What's the biggest challenge you're currently facing when it comes to your school library?
If you could give one piece of advice to a brand new school librarian (or someone considering becoming a school librarian), what would it be?
Make your library inviting and comfortable for all who visit. Then remember you are there to promote reading for all ages.
