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 Art Contest

There are some amazing teen artists out there.  The Library As Incubator Project is sponsoring an art contest for teens, encouraging them to create art inspired by a book, take a photo, and submit to them.  Sounds cool!  For more information, check out their post.

To Prize, or Not to Prize?

Prizes, prizes, prizes.  Do they make your Summer Library Program more or less fun?  There has been a lot of good discussion in our state lately about SLP prizes, how effective they are, and how much money we spend on them.  There are lots of interesting perspectives on this, and I'm looking forward to talking more about it with all of you.  Look for more discussion at the Summer Library Program workshop/mini-conference (coming up November 18, mark your calendars now, it's going to be FABULOUS!)

In the meantime, read Marge's latest post in Tiny Tips for Library Fun about their library's transition to a no-weekly-prize plan (with a book at the end instead).
