The most recent issue of VOYA has an article about a Nationwide Teen Lock-In, to be held Friday, August 1, 2014. Libraries can sign up to participate, and then schedule their own activities and times, but there are also virtual author visits and competitions that each library can participate in, too. This will be the third nationwide lock-in event, and teens have really enjoyed the chance to connect with people from all over the country, and participate in virtual author visits and other events that might not be possible with a smaller group.
Thinking about participating? Let me know! I would love to hear about how it goes for you!

This just in from Marge Loch Wouters: a new blog about programming for kids 0-11 years old: Kids Library Program Mojo . The blog is based on the discussion and course work in Marge's six week online UW- Madison SLIS CE course: Power Children's Programming.
Take a peek! There are ideas about programming, overcoming barriers, breaks, money, supplies, and more. It's always good to have some thoughtful discussion about programming along with the smorgasbord of ideas.
