We are always working on adding material to the collection, to be sure we are serving your needs! And we have recently ordered several new books on different aspects of teaching, to help make your job easier.
And I know the first thing every thinks is: No! I already have so much to do! I’ll never get through a book! I’ll just pretend I never heard about this, and hide from the librarian!
I get it.
But I’ll tell you a library secret. Shhh. This is just between us.
You don’t have to read the whole book. It’s okay to flip through to the one piece of useful information, and just read that.
There are no library police. There no judgy librarian who will know you didn’t carefully study every word.
Books are just information devices. They are here to help you, not to be a burden to you.
So, stop over at the library and check one out! Read two pages! Read a chapter! Heck, read the whole thing if you want! Get the value you need, and move on. Life is short, and there are always new books to read.
Here are some of our newest books that may be right for you: (the links on the title will take you to our catalog; the Amazon link will take you to Amazon.com for some further info on the book.)
