“It is books that are the key to the wide world; if you can’t do anything else, read all that you can.” - Jane Hamilton
It's a bittersweet feeling as we approach the last few weeks of school. For our educators and students, the school year ended in an unexpected turn. We understand your sadness and hope that this month's posters can help inspire your students to read at home.

How to Stay Connected with Library Patrons
As social distancing continues, we face the challenge of how to connect to our patrons. Lucky for us, the internet can be used as a tool to reach out to others without having to break social distancing precautions. Here are three ways you can use the internet to make meaningful connections.
1| Social Media: Use social media to make connections with your students and patrons. You can post book reviews, inspirational quotes, or fun pictures of yourself reading, cooking, learning—you can post anything that you think your patrons would love to see.
2| Video Calls: Miss talking to students about books? Create a time in your schedule where students can request a Zoom call with you to talk about books!
3| Utilize Your Library Software: Use your library automation software to connect with students. In Alexandria, we have a collection of tools you can use to connect and engage with your patrons, such as Bulletin Boards.
