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).

FREE Teen Online Conference from SLJ

Are you reading the posts about people's inspiring trips to ALA, hearing incredible authors speak and getting inspired for the work they do?  Are you feeling a little jealous?  Well, SLJ has put together an online teen conference for FREE, where you'll have access to some of that cool stuff.  The cost is reasonable, for sure!  And you'll get to hear authors like Maggie Stiefvater and Meg Medina, along with getting ideas about college and career readiness, using snapchat, mental health in YA literature, and serving the underserved.  I signed up!  I hope you can find time to attend, too:  August 10.

Poster Love

Jenna Gilles-Turner from the Chippewa Falls Public Library created some beautiful posters with engaging photographs and quotes and tidbits of child development information (including several about the importance of PLAY).  That's pretty great in and of itself.  The even cooler thing is that she shared the whole batch of them with us, so we could in turn share them with all of you.  These are lovely!  They are available on the IFLS website at https://iflsweb.org/youthposters.

Thank you, Jenna!  I hope to see some of these posters in other libraries in the coming months and years.
