At the Libraries: Heavy on the Visuals

Each week Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there’s something noteworthy going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

I just can’t understand this no-fiction-prize business from the Pulitzer Committee. How do you have nominees but no winner? I guess the New Yorker has it figured.
Who needs librarians when we have Google? Well, let’s just see how those two stack up against each other, shall we? Thanks, Sara!

Library Amnesty Day was a success in Anchorage, Alaska. What a great idea!
Books touch the heart, as one teacher can attest. But can they up kids’ test scores? And does it even matter?
World Book Night was Monday! Post photos and share stories here. Did you do it? Tell me how it went, please?
The Argentinian book tank I wrote about last year is on the move! The artist responsible for the tank filled with books is taking his show to Peru and Bolivia. Lucky countries!
Awesome-library-video-of-the-week alert: Stop-motion with a card catalog! You are welcome.

And here is the awesomest reading video of the week. Book People Unite!

Okay, I’m really throwing the visuals at you this week. Think of it as the graphic novel version of my column! Here’s a great comic that pretty much nails where book technology is headed…or does it? Thanks, Joe!

Visit the source to see the rest of the comic.
Guys! I finally saw The Hunger Games and I liked it! I didn’t love it, but it could have been really bad, so I am content. I also really want to take up archery… surely I can’t be the only one? See you all next week and thanks, as always, for reading! Email me with your great library news and I’ll be sure to run it.
