Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Book Trailers

A recent list-serv post directed me to this book trailer about a new collection of funny stories, edited by Jon Scieszka. It reminded me of some of the cool things Colleen, the teen librarian at the Menomonie Public Library, is doing with book trailers...She uses them during school visits to add variety to her book talks. She posts them on her website.

Some libraries, and even YALSA (ALA's Young Adult Library Services Association), have had contests for teens to make their own trailers, which seems like a pretty cool idea! If you are interested in doing this in your community, there are step-by-step instructions on ehow. And remember that public libraries now have access to hundreds of copyright-free music clips on Soundzabound:

To use Soundzabound, go to:
http://www.badgerlink.net/ and click on
“Soundzabound” under “ECB VideoLink” OR
http://www.ecb.org/ and click on “ECB VideoLink”

If your school or library would like a direct link to post on a
website, that link is http://www.wiscat.net/homepages/CustomerWide/ValidateGlobalIP.asp?cuid=stwi&lid=stwi&dataid=1072&term=

What are you doing in this area?? Share some thoughts!
