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).

Teen Tech Week!

Tomorrow, we'll go back to a round-up of ideas from the Summer Library Program, but for right now, I want to do a timely post about Teen Tech Week, which is coming right up March 10-16.  This year's theme:  Check In @ Your Library, which "encourages libraries to ...showcase the outstanding technology they offer, from services such as online homework help and digital literacy-focused programs to resources like e-books, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more."

So...what are you planning?  If you don't have anything yet, don't panic.  You can take some of the great ideas on the website, and from fellow librarians and use them during your own Teen Tech Week that fits your schedule better!

In Rice Lake, Ashley is planning to load their library's iPad with apps, and have the teens evaluate them for small prizes.  In addition, a staff member who is big into Tumblr is going to do a Tumblr showcase for them.

In Eau Claire, they are hosting a Teen Tech Week Open House for teens and their parent/guardians, to learn about all the tech-related resources available at the library, from e-content to databases to iPads.
