Shark Week on Flannel Friday
The roundup of flannel board stories for Friday, July 10th focused on SHARK Week. See all the contributions at Ms. Kelly at the Library site. http://mskellyatthelibrary.blogspot.com/ I LOVE, LOVE the interactive songs—“Five little fishies swimming in the sea, Teasing Mr. Shark,….” from Ms Kelly and “One little shark went out to playOn a tidal wave one day…” from Mel’s Desk.

Smack Dab in the middle of Summer Reading…
Another post from the ALSC blog http://www.alsc.ala.org/blog/2015/07/smack-dab-in-the-middle-of-summer-reading/. Check out the Post-It art executed by teens at the Lewisville Public Library (Lewisville, TX). [Be sure to look at the inspiration for the teen’s art from the blog on Bored Panda.]
For Your RADAR: Collection Management–Back to School
As I’m nursing sunburned shoulders from mowing all weekend, it hardly seems possible that it is time to think about some new back-to-school titles! The ALSC blog http://www.alsc.ala.org/blog/2015/07/its-time-to-think-about-back-to-school-books/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AlscBlog+%28ALSC+Blog%29 lists some titles for you to consider. And, I’ve put together a small selection of books from the Youth Services shelves for you to review at your library. Interested in seeing back to school titles? Send me an e-mail and I’ll send them out to you for a week-long review / scrutiny period!
All my best…
