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).

A few pre-weekend nuggets

If you are anything like me, it is difficult to be inside working on a day like this (especially when there is so much work to be done OUTSIDE at home!).  Here are a few tidbits I've run across this week that might make staring at your computer more fun.

No Time for Flashcards has a great list of 50 summertime activities to do with a 3-year-old.  There are lots of these ideas that would be a great addition to a program for preschoolers, or that could be adapted for an early literacy environment.

The inimitable John Green created a Mental Floss video with 47 Charming Facts about children's books and their authors.

The ALSC Blog has a really interesting idea for making books more social by having a special collection where you invite readers to write notes/doodle/etc. in the margins.

Happy weekend inspiration!
