Dear Camilla;

Just starting to find my way around the site. I am desperately looking for ways to keep my Library relevant to the school community. At the moment I feel that the Library has little value for many of the students; except to borrow fiction books. I have been pushing the value of the Library through the VELS areas but to little avail at the moment. Open to ideas! Thanks for being a friend.

Amanda
