Speed Racer Science at the Library

Speed Racer Science at the Library | Libraries | Scoop.it

In my experience, children love things that go. The train set in my branch’s picture book area is always surrounded by choo-chooing kids; our race car books are perennially popular; and I’ve had to stop more than one pair of young friends from racing through the stacks to prove their speed. Thus it was a no-brainer for me to develop a Speed Racer Science program for school-age children at my library. Here’s what we did–I highly encourage you to take it and make it your own.

Children’s Librarians in the Digital Age – Part I: A Call to Action | The Digital Media Diet

Children’s Librarians in the Digital Age – Part I: A Call to Action | The Digital Media Diet | Libraries | Scoop.it

There is resistance to digital books for kids from many teachers and parents … and in many ways, librarians are no different than others who work closely with children. But there is a growing understanding in the library community that digital content is arriving in a big way, like it or not. And libraries, of all the traditional curators in print, are truly the ideal gatekeepers of quality kids digital content. Librarians are trusted, objective, skilled in evaluating content and part of a large network of potential curators. They are also very concerned about the impact of the digital shift on readers of all ages.
