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).

The Reading Streak

Summer Library Programs are hard upon us, I hope you are all holding up well! Here's a new idea, in case your idea box is empty!

Nick Glass, the founder of TeachingBooks.net, posted a note to a list serv about the idea of having a read-aloud streak for families, sort of like a pitching or hitting streak in baseball. It started with this New York Times article about a family that carried on their streak from fourth grade till college!

Maybe there are applications for this for libraries. It sure seems like it! Especially for kids who are interested in sports and statistics, it might be a fun thing to try.
