WEEDED: Book Art on Display

Last year I convinced one of our art teachers to take on a sculpting project using weeded books.  We were all (library staff, administrators, art department and students) very pleased with the outcome of those weeded book art sculptures.  I didn’t even have to ask this year. The art teacher let me know right away […]

When Mrs. Nelson asked if I wanted to write a blog post for her blog Cathy Nelson’s Professional Thoughts I was a little unsure.  I mean the title of her blog is Cathy Nelson’s Professional Thoughts and I was not sure I actually had anything to say worthy of being labeled a “professional thought.” However, I started […]

A post was in my reader this afternoon, one so moving, I popped out to go leave a comment of support. Apparently the post has been pulled down.   Ever happened to you? How many of us have been on the other end of a Tweet, Facebook, or blog post as author and shared something, […]

(At the encouragement of my sweet friend JT, I post this.) And the headline read: Pornographic required reading in Knox Schools? Posted by The Knoxville Journal on March 9th, 2012 http://theknoxvillejournal.com/pornographic-required-reading-in-knox-schools/ If you haven’t read it, go ahead, though many can probably guess at the knee-jerk reaction the disgruntled parents and media are clamoring for.

I know after my last post some wanted to know how our virtual book club went. I must say while some in the group experienced serious technical glitches, we seemed to have very few. We could hear and we could see.  There were times where feedback from some of the groups was a problem–not sure […]
