Calling all mystery lovers!  This idea uses paper bags to conceal book covers.  Students get a 'mystery' book that they can't look at before checking it out.  After reading it they report back to the librarian on how they liked the book.  Kids will love the anticipation of getting something unknown to read.

I know this is a little simplistic, but I thought this flowchart from the fine folks at EasyBib was a fantastic way to drive home to students that more often than not they need to cite their sources.

Paragráfe, citação, referência bibliográfica não são plágio!

There's no need to plagiarism... just quote properly!

Yes, simple to us, but to our kids? Probably not. Nice to have a visual for them to see just when they need to cite and add a bibliography.

Here's another reading incentive idea--make students go on a 'blind date' with a good book.  This would definitely work well for high schoolers.

I really like how this book selection chart takes a lot of the emphasis off of 'Is this book your reading level?' and places it more on 'Does this book look interesting to you?'.  I definitely think stimulating interest in reading is so much more important than worrying over AR and DRA levels in the school library.
