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).

John Green Shout-Out to Librarians and Teachers

I used to watch the vlogbrothers videos more regularly.  I got my fill of them a few years ago, but I got reintroduced when the Office of Intellectual Freedom blog highlighted a video that John Green made, talking about how his Printz Award winning book Looking for Alaska topped the list of Most Challenged books in the US in 2015.  My favorite part of the video is where he emphasizes that LIBRARIANS and TEACHERS are trained and skilled professionals who choose materials carefully and with a deep understanding of literature and the youth they serve.  It's always nice to get a shout-out like that from a revered author.
