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).

Media Mentors White Paper

The Association for Library Service to Children just released a white paper entitled Media Mentorship in Libraries Serving Youth.  It has some helpful background, and a strong argument that libraries are uniquely positioned to act as Media Mentors for the families in our communities.  It's worth reading if you have the time.

Either way, be sure to mark your calendars for 2 workshops that will help you develop your skills as a Media Mentor:  New Media Training with Carissa Christner at WITC in Rice Lake on September 18 and Media Mentor Training with Erin Walsh and Chip Donohue on October 6 at the Florian Gardens in Eau Claire.
