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).

Vote for Summer Library Program Themes and Slogans

Here is your chance to vote on themes and slogans for future Summer Library Program themes. Vote by April 1! If you don't vote, you don't get to complain about the choice, that's my motto.

Barb Huntington, our representative at the national Collaborative Summer Library Program, is asking for folks to fill out a quick survey, and she will base her vote in a few weeks on the results of this survey! I took it and it took me about 5 minutes.

Great Use for Flip Video Camera Kits!

From Barb Huntington's Monthly Posting for System Youth Services Liaisons:

The "Why I Need My Library" contest seeks to engage young library advocates and asks them to create short, original videos on why they think libraries are needed now more than ever. The producers of the winning videos can win up to $3,000 for their library. The contest is open through April 18. More information on "Why I Need My Library" is available at www.ilovelibraries.org/whyineedmylibrary.

Remember, making videos like this is just the reason I created a Flip Video Kit! Borrow it to use with your teen advisory board, your book discussion group, your after school gang. Contact me at langby @ ifls.lib.wi.us to borrow it, and be sure to send me a copy if anyone makes a "Why I Need My Library" video!
