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).

Rethinking Reading in the Summer

The ALSC Blog has had a series of really interesting and thought-provoking articles about ways to re-think summer, and promote reading in ways that are inclusive, easier for everyone, and focused on the outcomes.  I think this is so worth thinking about, we've been bringing it up at the SLP workshop for the past few years, and I'm seeing some interesting changes happen in our system, state, and across the country.

I urge you to take a look at this series and think about whether some of these changes are ones that make sense for you, your library, and most importantly, for the kids and families you serve.
