Starting next week, I will have an additional check out time, in the 400 Collaborative Space. 

I know that I only see some of you ONCE during our 15 day Rotation, so this should help us to get our students new books regularly. 

I will be Library on a Cart, during normal ancillary and we will meet in the 400 Collaborative Space as well as extra check out times.

The BLUE highlighted areas are the times that you may send TWO students at a time to the Collaborative Space for EXTRA Check Out. 

If you have any questions, please let me know!
