Cet été, vous allez lire –enfin, si vous aimez lire, les vacances, c'est globalement le bon moment. Et vous avez envie de lire des trucs chouettes, mais cette année vous avez un peu loupé tout ce qui est sorti, parce que, bah, c'était l'année: le travail, les enfants, les séries, Facebook, Instagram, le sommeil aussi, parfois. Du coup, les journalistes de Slate et Reader vous ont fait une liste d'œuvres super, voire extraordinaires, dont vous pourrez profiter sur la plage, ou dans les aéroports bondés.

Keep ’em Coming Back for S’mores | Programs That Pop

Keep ’em Coming Back for S’mores | Programs That Pop | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Every teen librarian knows programs that offer snacks are usually a hit and can even entice teens reluctant to join in the fun. With that in mind, we offer many teen programs that include snacks, from Chocolate Fest to Pizza Gardening. When the Student Ambassadors proposed making a solar-powered s’mores oven for an Earth Day activity, we knew it would be a hit.

Northrop Frye at 100: Does he still matter?

Northrop Frye at 100: Does he still matter? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

A large portrait of a seated Northrop Frye hangs on the walls of the Pratt Library Reading Room at Victoria College in Toronto. His image is a presence that looms over students. The canvas depicts the famous scholar hovering in midair above a wasteland setting of grey mountains and forbidding flat lands. He is neither up high nor down low. On this, the centennial of his birth, that floating presence is almost a metaphor for his current status.

A Guide to Maximizing Your Audiobook Time

A Guide to Maximizing Your Audiobook Time | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

When we have too many books and too little time many of us turn to audiobooks to keep our read on while our hands and eyes are otherwise occupied. But let’s face it, our bookish desires are bottomless. We need to have a few cards up our sleeves to squeeze every second of listening time out of the day.
