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).

It Gets Better Project

Thanks to Becky from Prescott for suggesting this excellent and important Youtube Channel:

"I just came across the It Gets Better project on Youtube last night. A must see for librarians who serve teens. Every community has gay teens, and with bullying and intimidation of gay teens on the rise, it is even more important that libraries remain safe places for all teens, regardless of sexual orientation. Dan Savage started the project in response to media coverage of several recent suicides by gay teens, and Youtube has received hundreds of videos from people all over the world reiterating the message - "it gets better." Positively inspirational!http://www.youtube.com/user/itgetsbetterproject"
