It is hard to believe that the 2007-08 school year is upon us already. Today is the first day of the year. I didn’t get my list of things that I wanted to before school started, so I am starting tonight to finish consolidating the MARC records before we reload them to Koha.
I need to order Harry Potter #7 for all schools and Battle Books for schools that wanted them. Cleaning the desk was the first job and it is done for the most part. I still have a lot of books that need to be set up and ready to go, but I can see the top of my desk which is a plus over this morning. Here is a list of the upcoming events that I need to finish.
- KOHA record integration.
- Battle Book orders.
- Harry Potter orders.
- RIF distribution box up.
I also need to set up for the AASL conference that will be done before the week is out. Boy, I hope this all gets done.

The last two weeks I have spent in classes. Today is the first real day back to work. I find it interesting that this is the case, because this week, I have been in my office, cleaned my desk, passed out coupons for free books, and met with new teachers to encourage them to use the media center. How many of us find that we have put in lots of time before the first day comes around?
Today is set aside for packing RIF books in boxes. We offer book giveaways three times a year. The first is at the beginning of the year. My first year was last year and my predessor had packed the boxes for the start of the year(Thank you Lois) This year, I remember how tired I was at the end of the year and that I didn’t pack the boxes. Hopefully, I will get them done today. One of the timings you have to think of out here is when will the plane fly out to the villages. I know the plane is flying out on Monday to bring teachers back to the district office for inservice. It will fly out empty, but when it flies back to the village at the end of the week, the plane will be full leaving here.
Good luck to all who start back next week.
