Conference talk: Please join me by leaving messages and comments

This great article from Judy on how essential it is to embrace web 2.0 tools and a 21st century mindset to transform school libraries (see below). This is definitely a must read. I would love to know to what extend local librarians in South Africa are using social media tools like blogs, wiki's, Youtube and twitter... to turn their libraries into havens for 21st century digital natives.



I am scheduled to do a talk on how librarians in South Africa can use blogs and micro-blogging in… Continue

Greetings Maggie,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen

Hi Maggie,
Glad to have a collegue on the continent! Do you work at one of the American schools? I've heard good things... Our internet is actually pretty good. We switched services at the beginning of the school year, and that was a little dicey, but now that it is set up, its been pretty good! We depend on it a lot for the Library IT classes, too (I am also a 2.0 addict! ), so thank goodness! How are things where you are?
