Check and Treat!
No, it's not overly crafty or creative and it's probably already being done by many librarians out there, with a variety of cute(r) names. But at Muller Road, for the past 2 days, students have been "checking" and we've been "treating". Simple concept and I really don't know why I never thought of that before. It's a win-win for students and teachers alike.
Students come into the media center to return, check their account, check out, or pay fines and voila, they receive a sweet treat. For myself and my assistant, this is also a great way to hand out the candy that will no doubt end up in our stomachs by the end of the semester. Win-win!!!
