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).

Book Trailers for the Win

Book Trailers are a fun way to promote books.  Colleen from Menomonie often uses them as part of the mix when she is booktalking to teens.  Some libraries feature them prominently on websites. 

This seems like a cool project for a teen advisory board, or younger kids, too.  Pam Gardow, Memorial High School librarian, works with students to create trailers like this one.  Her students use Animoto as a platform--a simple tool that allows them to create eye-catching trailers.  It might be worth spending some time checking it out!  There are more great ideas and resources on the Read On Wisconsin website.
