You’ve seen the demos! You’ve watched the videos! You’ve been practicing your skills!
Now is your chance to show what you know in the Maywood Community School ‘Power Users of the Library Online Catalogue Contest’
|Contest runs from February 14 to March 12. That’s 4 weeks.|
|The class with the most individual students who place holds using the online catalogue during that time, wins.|
|You can only place a hold on a book in the week when your class does NOT come to the library for book exchange. That gives you two chances.|
|A ‘hold’ means you place a hold online and then you actually check the book out of the library. This means you should choose a book that’s IN the library already.|
You can only borrow one book at a time, so if you already have a book checked out, you need to return it (you can return it on the day you borrow the new one).
If you put holds on two books and they are both ‘In’ the library, I give you the first one that comes up in my list.
Use the How-To videos on the library blog if you can’t remember how to log in, or how to place a hold, or how to look at your account information. Here is the link to the videos.
Depending on how many classes tie for first place, the prize money will range from a minimum of $20 to a maximum of $80. As a suggestion, you could use the prize money for a book or a set of books for your classroom; it could be food; it could be a combination of books and food, depending on how rich your prize is.
