Happy Books = Happy Librarian! We all want our librarian to be happy right?
& of course want our kids to take care of our books! You know the old saying... "If the librarian ain't happy, nobody's happy!" . . . .Well, something like that anyway!
Librarians have a big job! I think so anyway... keeping it clean, inviting, up-to-date and ready for each person that walks in there is a huge responsibility! Not to mention all the stuff they know! Amazing! Last year we began using Our Library RULES! book that I worked on last year. We needed a kid friendly way to teach the rules of the library & book care. Our librarian made a large, color printed out version for herself, and she printed copies for every kid in the school! She used the slideshow version for teaching, and the kids loved having their own little emergent reader to take home and share about the library! Mrs. B. used her version all through the year to refresh and remind students about book care and library behavior, and kiddos that came in new to the school got their own copy of Our Library RULES! upon visiting the library for the first time. Mrs. B also share with me that some special students (wink, wink!) got an extra copy of the little book as a gentle reminder when library books came back a little too used if you know what I mean! If your library needs help spreading the good word of book care and library etiquette check out this resource! (Description below)

"Our Library Rules!" is a positive, informative, fun, and student friendly text to build community and share school wide with students to teach about using the library, proper book care, and celebrate the fact that their library is the best! In fact, it rules!
It is perfect as a shared story! Copy enough for each student in the school to learn about and review library rules, proper book care as well as literacy promotion!
(The play on words “We need library rules so our library can rule!” teaches multiple meaning words too!
(CCSS ELA: Language Standard 4, Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases by using context clues, analyzing meaningful word parts, and consulting general and specialized reference materials, as appropriate.)
Our Library Rules is VERY EASY to copy and prepare! It can be single sided, OR copy double sided to save paper. Simply copy (on your copier choose the staple twice option on the left side), cut with paper cutter, and done! If you have a printing department at your district office they can make even quicker work of it when preparing for the whole school!
Our School Librarian copied the pages onto extra large construction paper, and spiral bound it to make herself a big book for instruction and review!
