Applique designs give exciting new appeal to second-hand bicycle jerseys. On the mint-green V-neck, the peace medallion was made of T-shirt knit fabric layered onto brocade.

With a new year at Bellview, I’ve resumed management of daily library operations. I do my best to keep the collection as current as possible: adding titles to my recommendation list based on student interests and curriculum support. Always a highlight: placing that order and awaiting a shipment of books!

Here’s a mystery twist to my bicycle commute. I worked at Bellview Elementary School this morning, then rode to Body Support Systems, Inc. Someone attached this light to my bicycle fork at some time during the day. When did it arrive? At which work site did someone attach this to my bike? I didn’t notice it when I left Bellview, but the light’s cheerful green contrast against my bike’s teal frame caught my attention right away when I left Body Support Systems, Inc.

Several of the titles for Oregon Battle of the Books have arrived in Bellview library! I spent the past couple of days getting books ready for use and putting them out on display. By the time I left today, many of these titles were already in students’ hands. Big thanks to Bellview PTO, which purchased the books, and volunteers who applied each book’s barcode. This library assistant really appreciates the support.

I’m continually intrigued by the decoupling of education from the university setting. This latest example, Town Square Academia in the Upper Galilee Region in Israel, offers free courses with direct relevance to “life outside the campus walls.”

This evening, I completed “About Autism in the Library,” the first of four modules in the Project PALS online course, “Serving Library Users on the Autism Spectrum” (offered through OCLC WebJunction).

The beginning of a new school year coincides with Library Card Sign-Up Month. One year ago, I designed this sign promoting Jackson County Library Services, and once again this year, I put it out on display in Bellview Elementary School library. The sign specifically highlights resources through our Ashland library, and when I first designed the sign I made it available to Ashland library children’s department staff. I encourage children’s department staff at other JCLS branches to download the file from Slideshare.
