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).

Reading Goals Results

Thanks for bearing with me as I try to figure out the best way to manage the Reading Goals project.  I was pleased with the results, but found my form to be a little unwieldy and time-consuming to manage.   Hopefully I'll figure out a way to make this easier on myself next time.  Any suggestions are welcome!

We had fourteen librarians participate in January.  I have put the list below, with author and title, and color-coded according to how it was recommended (Enthusiastically recommended, recommended, and recommended for certain kids)

Or, check out the kind of messy results with all the notes and everything, here
