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).

Pew Research Says Teens ARE Reading

Later this week, look for some insight gleaned from great sessions I attended at the Wisconsin Library Association Conference (it was great to see many of you there!).

For now, I want to draw your attention to some heartening news--and a wake-up call about teens.  According to a recently-published Pew Research Study, teens are more likely to have read a book and used the library in the past year than their older counterparts!  And they don't know they can check out e-content at their libraries, but would be interested, particularly in checking out pre-loaded e-readers.

See some great analysis by Paul Nelson here.

And if you still feel queasy about using e-readers and want some hands-on practice, sign up for one of three sessions coming up next week!
