Steve beat me to the solution to the reading during the workday dilemma--get as 
many staff  members as possible on the SSR bandwagon.  We did a Teen Read Day as 
part of Teen Read Week.  I convinced every English teacher to do SSR on the same 
day.  The teachers loved the chance to model reading for their students. The 
students wrote comments and 98% were very enthusiastic about Teen Read Day, 
suggesting we do it on a regular basis. The students said they want to read but 
never have time.

 Ironically, the students in study halls did not want to use the library for SSR 
during their study periods.  We brought in rocking chairs and bean bag chairs, 
table lamps and reading lights.  We turned off the regular lights and made the room 
as cozy as we could. Nevertheless, they students said they needed study halls for 
homework other than reading and only a few came to read.
