Thing 10-Websites- go!

I really like the many photographs on the Boston Public Library website of people using the library!
I also think that the teen movie reviews on the Denver Public site are really cool!
I downloaded "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear.

Google calendar

This is easy to use --even for the first time.

Wiki "fun and learn" time

I had some fun with the Charlie Brown cartoon and have used Wikis before, adding to the ALSC wiki about the partnership committees that I am a Priority Consultant for.
I have not been a fan of Wikipedia because with my librarian background and daily experience I have always put accuracy and reliability of information first.
I can see Wiki use for discussions between staff instead of a meeting at a set date and time.
This would allow a freer exchange perhaps than emails to the group concerned.

Children's books and more

There were several tags on this subject that would be useful I think. Will think about adding links along the way.

Podcasting good things to share

I looked at the Denver Public Library podcast and the Charlotte Mcklenburg Teen pages--I liked the cool names for sections (the Loft) and think this is a good way to promote what the library has to offer teens.
I would like to try this with an author visit in the coming year.
