Next stop on my vacation is Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks Mountains, located in New York State. I call it bear country because everywhere you look there are bear signs. And just last night my mother had the nerve to leave pretzels out on our porch! What was she thinking? Tempting the bears, mom?
Anyway, since being here, I have been hunting for libraries. Before I left for vacation I found this video – Shout It Out for Your Library – and thought, YES! That’s the way to get support for our libraries, during these tough economic times. Keep getting Barbara Walters, Malcolm Gladwell, and other big names to share their personal experiences as to what libraries did for them. (video comes via Facebook friend, and librarian, Jeffie Nicholson) Do take a look at this video and here’s a thought –> maybe you can create your own SHOUT OUT FOR LIBRARIES with your students sharing their experiences.
