LIS Library 180 Project

We’re on Tumblr!

This year the LIS Library will be participating in a 180 photography project.  The premise is simple: document the school year in the library by taking one photo every school day and post it to a blog.  I’ve chosen Tumblr as our medium.

Want to participate? Come see M.s Katy Vance in the secondary library.  We would love to share your 180 submissions on the LIS Library 180 tumblr.

Visit our LIS Library Tumblr and check out the first few days.
