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).

Build a Better World Resource

Cardboard.  Cats optional.
The other day Kim, the youth services librarian in Clear Lake, and I were chatting about programs using cardboard to build cool things.  I was reminded of Caine's Arcade, a charming film about a kid who made a whole arcade out of cardboard, and the filmmaker who discovered it and took it seriously.  The Global Cardboard Challenge was inspired by that project, and kids all over the world are unleashing their imaginations and making cool games and other creations out of cardboard.

If you are still looking for a low-cost, engaging, imaginative and fun program that riffs off the Build a Better World theme, take a peek at these resources!
