This is short and sweet but full of great examples for bringing STEM/STEAM activities into your library! I have often heard librarians lament about not being able to bring in math teachers to the collaborative process or not really knowing how to support math curriculum in the library. Check out this article and then go visit those planning meetings!

When Parade asked me to compile a list of the best 75 books to celebrate the magazine’s 75th anniversary, my first answer was, “Not a chance!” I could picture the mountains of furious letters complaining about all the great works of literature I’d left off.

Can Reading Fiction Literally Change Your Mind? | The Digital Reader

Can Reading Fiction Literally Change Your Mind? | The Digital Reader | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it
If you are committed to the pleasures of reading you may be pleased to discover that there is evidence to suggest that reading fiction is good for you. In a paper published in Trends in Cognitive Science, the psychologist and novelist Keith Oatley lays out his stall, arguing that fiction, and especially literary fiction, is a beneficial force in our lives. It has long been held – from the high-minded humanism that Dr Samuel Johnson espoused in the 18th century to the likes of the fiercely serious literary critic FR Leavis in the 20th century – that literature is good for you. But while once the only evidence considered necessary was that of the critic’s judgement and sensitivity, Oatley and other psychologists today are to be thanked for demanding rather more concrete evidence. It’s difficult to test the claim that literature makes us better people. It won’t do just to see whether people who read a lot of fiction are, on average, more thoughtful, more helpful, better liked and perhaps more successful than people who don’t.

Just because upper middle class white millennials aren’t likely to use something, doesn’t mean it’s worthless.

Do we even need libraries anymore? It seems, these days, that a lot of Millennials are asking that question.


Many apparently believe that the internet renders public libraries obsolete.


Here's why they're wrong.

Why Reading With Kids Matters, At Home And In The Classroom by Annie Thoms

Why Reading With Kids Matters, At Home And In The Classroom by Annie Thoms | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it
When I was twelve, my father read me Ursula K. LeGuin’s story “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas.” In this fable, LeGuin imagines a utopian society with a dark secret. Every inhabitant of the beautiful city of Omelas is happy, but their happiness is dependent on the existence of one utterly miserable child, who…
