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).

Popular Series

I'm working on putting together an updated list of series that are super-popular in libraries. I'll post it here, and also on our website, but I can't make the list without your help.
What are the series for elementary-high school age that you can't keep on the shelf??
Comment below, please!
