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).

LMNOPlaying in Fall Creek

What do you do when folks don't come to evening storytime? Give up? Not if you are Jenna Gilles from Fall Creek. She has decided to put a little spin on the name--families are invited to LMNOPlaying twice a month--an evening of stories, focusing on a letter, bedtime snacks, and a cool activity pack to take home. This sounds like fun, it would be hard to keep me away from something called LMNOPlaying if I was a kid or parent in Fall Creek!

Fall Creek also recently rolled out their BLOG. Take a peek for more cool ideas as the fall progresses.

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), invites all teens to get out the vote for the Teens’ Top Ten. Teens can vote for their favorite books from the last year in the annual poll at http://www.blogger.com/. Voting is open through September 16.

The 25 nominees for this year’s Teens’ Top Ten are available at http://www.blogger.com/, along with a toolkit for librarians to promote the Teens’ Top Ten to the young adults visiting their libraries. The final 2011 Teens’ Top Ten list will be announced during Teen Read Week, October 16-22, 2011.

If you love reading literature for teens, check out the Readers' Choice nominations. Teen's Top Ten is for teen voters only. But if you have read a fabulous book this year and want to nominate it for a YALSA Reader's Choice Award, this is a great idea.

What have you read this year that you especially loved?
