It Really Is “All About the Books”

Um, so, this is awesome. It is my new theme song! I really have nothing more to add. Just watch it. I loved it!

A Townwide Scavenger Hunt | Programs That Pop

libraryjournal:

The always delightful (and laser-fingered) @erintheshea explains how she organized a bookish scavenger hunt in Darien, CT.

THE One Book, One Community pick for 2013 at the Darien Library, CT, was David ­Benioff’s City of Thieves, in which the two main characters are charged to collect a dozen eggs in the starving city of Leningrad during the Nazi invasion. The penalty should they not complete this outrageous task is to forfeit their lives.

As soon as I knew City of Thieves was the choice, I knew that we had to do a townwide scavenger hunt. It also seemed like a great opportunity to partner with and support local businesses.

Super Bowl Sunday @ The Library? » Public Libraries Online

What do you think about watching a sporting event like the Super Bowl on a big screen @ the library? Would you go?

Personally, I like the questions brought up in this article, and it definitely gives me things to think about as far as policies in the library go, but I LOVE the idea of Sports Viewing @ The Library!
