Blog post ideas come from all kinds of places – including Instagram comments! In fact, one of the reasons I started this blog some 13 years ago was to share the content I made to help other people. Hate reinventing the wheel and I remembered when I was a baby Librarian I started with NOTHING. Was hoping to help to save someone else time and to remember what I did when, where, & how!

So, now as I am a fully seasoned and experienced Librarian (and retiring!) I thought I would pass along some tickets, presentations, and printables that could be of some help. Before you try and download a copy of any of these –

(Student Repair Ticket – Make a Copy)

This year has been ALL about our Chromebooks. Haven’t had the time or the ability to teach much when every 5 minutes I have a kid coming in saying things like:

  • “I can’t log into my Chromebook”
  • “It’s dead!” or “it won’t charge!”
  • “My screen just cracked itself!” 
  • “It’s just broken”
  • “Some of my keys fell off!”
  • “I can’t open any Google docs”

(Borrow Chromebook Ticket – Make a Copy)

OR… “I just forgot it, can I borrow one for today?” 


We copy these on different colors – so we can say, fill out a yellow or pink ticket. We also have a study carrel near our Circulation Desk that have these tickets, not so neat signage, tape, golf pencils, and a charging station. Pictured above but here’s what it looks like without text.

But sometimes, we anticipate a DELUGE of kiddos coming in to get Chromebooks, we use this huge one page ticket. This usually occurs after a long break, on a Monday’s, or when there’s a full moon. When that happens we set up something like this on a Library Media Table using this BIG emergency loaner ticket.

Because Kids Just Forget their Chromebooks

Why haven’t I blogged more?

To be honest (TBH) I’ve neglected this blog since COVID came our way. I was so busy helping connect all my students, teachers, and community because we Librarians are usually the on-site — or with distance learning the off-site Geek Squad. This is NOT an apology for not blogging. If you’ve been a long time reader you’ll know one of my first rules of blogging is NEVER, EVER, start a blog with a lame apology for not posting. This is an explanation. How is it different? Well, didn’t use the word sorry, now did I?

I am retiring this year.  Giving away EVERYTHING in my office. Leaving the Lava Lamps though! 


I’m also leaving all the Makerspace & Gaming stuff. But after 25 years in my Library – it’s a lot of clearing away! I should have sold the stuff I bought with my own money on eBay! LOL  But ugh…shipping.
