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).

Great Websites for Kids Update

Great Websites for Kids (GWS) (www.ala.org/greatsites or gws.ala.org), the American Library Association's Association for Library Service to Children’s (ALSC) online website directory, has been completely redesigned.

Same reliable content, but the design is more visual and kid-friendly, including thumbnail images for each site. There are opportunities for users to rate the sites, and special sections highlight most popular pages, Sites of the Week, and more.

This has always been a great site for finding reliable information for kids doing homework or browsing, and it seems to be even more useful. Plans to increase the interactive elements are underway for 2012.
