Textbook responsibilities can be a real drain on a librarian’s time, and I don’t know how the actual process is handled at your school. BUT if you and your team are physically handing the books to the kids, it is a super chance to make a personal connection with all the students and promote the library at the same time. Otherwise some of the kids may never come to the library during the year.
By the way, the Lego Librarian is in set 10 of the mini legos. Although you probably can't read it, the coffee cup says SHHHHH!
