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).

Serving Tweens--some resources

At our Summer Library Program workshop, one of the groups that librarians felt they had a hard time reaching is tweens (3rd-7th graders or so).  I found  a few good resources for people who are feeling like this is a gap for them:

Also:  remember the amazing kits that both WVLS and IFLS have collected that are available to you, ranging from low tech (woodworking, jewelry-making, needle-felting, calligraphy, knitting) to higher tech (Makey Makey, Sphero, Little Bits).  Many of these kits are perfect for this age group--it's a golden age of MAKING.
