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 Librarian Toolbox

I had heard about the Teen Librarian Toolbox blog/resource before, but hadn't really spent much time exploring it until I had the chance to see Karen Jensen at this year's Wisconsin Library Association YSS Luncheon.

If you haven't taken time to look, I highly encourage you to take a gander.  Here are some of the treasures:

  • Real-life issues like sexual violence and consent, and ideas about how to use literature to open up important discussions about these topics
  • Suggestions for working with middle-grade/tween audiences (3rd-7th graders)
  • Teen Services 101, with everything from suggestions for booktalking to creating teen service plans to a whole bunch of other relevant stuff
  • A plethora of teen programming ideas

And a whole bunch more.  Take a peek, you'll be astonished and pleased that there is such a fabulous resource out there FOR YOU!
