Mrs. Eaton and Gibson’s classes participated in a speed dating event in the Loquacious Library. Mrs. Myers used the documents and ideas presented on Gwyneth Jones’s (also known as The Daring Librarian) blog. Mary Reilly-Clark (SEMS Library Lady) came up with the activity, and you can find the details about the activity and the documents necessary to replicate it at The Daring Library blog.
Thank you Mrs. Eaton and Mrs. Gibson for taking photos and filming! Please take a look at the video to see how the dating scene went down …

The students also had pencils and crayons, and they wrote messages and drew a pictures on the inside of the cards.
Once a month, the Teen Department reps come from the Spartanburg County Public Library during lunch to promote programs and give away prizes. Sometimes, the prizes are instant win, and sometimes they do a drawing. This past Friday was a drawing. Congratulations to Marina Chan for winning the Teen prize!
