Welcome!

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).

This weekend, Morning Edition featured a crowd-sourced poem featuring things about America that people are thankful for.  The remarkable Kwame Alexander took submissions and turned them into a beautiful poem.  And guess what?  The thing he said stood out to him from all the submissions from around the country was:

Public libraries get a specific mention in the poem itself, but the conversation beforehand has a lot more library love.

I highly recommend checking it out.  I found it quite moving!
