From Monday, June 18 - Tuesday, July 17, 2012 we ran the most awesome challenge:
Teachers vs Librarians in a read-off!
It's over and it was amazing!
73 teachers read 1215.25 books! That's an average of 16.65 books!
How cool is that?
But, wait, that's not all!
88 librarians read 1656 books for an average of 18.81 books per person!
In one month 161 teachers and librarians joined forces and read 2871.25 books!
Did you read that carefully? We read almost 3,000 books in a month!!!!!!!!! Honestly? We read more than that because some picture books and graphic novels and shorter chapter books were worth different point values.
My mind is boggling right now!
To say this was a success would be a gross understatement. Can you imagine what this means for students and other staff? How will this translate into suggestions for books in the fall? Wow.
Oh, and did I mention GO #LEAGUEOFLIBRARIANS! We are the champions my friend! We kept on reading till the end!
Anyway, thanks to Sherry, Jillian and Brian for letting me help out with this! Jillian and Brian came up with the whole #throwdown idea and modified it for us to do this summer. They are the best.
