The ideas bubbling around

This is my third national conference, and one of my favorite bits is the informal sharing of ideas. I LOVE hearing how other librarians are working in their schools and getting inspired. Some of the ideas are just so clever--hearing Gerri Fegan describe her summer reading kick off with original lyrics to popular songs (I am especially intrigued by her taking the Monkees "I'm A Believer" and switching it to "I am a Reader"). We heard this morning about a librarian who has exercise bikes in the library with book holders attached to promote a "ride and read" program--so yes, thinking about finding my gym teacher and seeing what's on Craig's list under free exercise equipment. Love to shake up my library brain.
