Read about all the winners here.
Today I have placed a new widget on my sidebar at the request of Andy Woodworth, a fellow Geektribe member. He feels (and I agree) that far too few librarians report book challenges. At times I wonder if this same group even realizes there is a division of ALA devoted to preserving that freedom to [...]
Happy to say I’m in some very good company here with MANY friends. I’m honored to be there with my friends, especially SC friend and SCASL Board member Tamara Cox, author of the Eliterate Librarian!!

I think some of the motivation has come from book trailers being shared in my reader [...]

Well my Carolina Gamecocks lost yesterday in their bid to be the 2010 SEC Champions, but during my ride home from Atlanta, Diane Cordell emailed me to let me know that I was nominated again for the annual Edublog Awards. This is my fourth year in a row being nominated. I am surprised and delighted [...]
