A place for librarians to get and share information, ideas and inspiration about serving youth of all ages--and their caregivers. Especially for librarians in west-central Wisconsin's Indianhead Federated Library System.
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).

Experiential Prizes are a cool idea, and research shows that they can be more effective than trinkets and toys. Jenna Gilles-Turner, in Fall Creek, has challenged kids to read for chances to be the one to get to SLIME Jenna at the Summer Library Program party! Everyone gets to be in on the fun of watching Jenna good-humoredly submit to slime, and the winner gets plenty of cheers and attention. Jenna says response has been great for this. We'll talk to her after the party to see if she has tips for getting slime out of hair and clothes!
