Doug Mirams's curator insight, February 2, 2013 6:40 AM

Another seed lending library is featured. Especially love the quote from a parent,

 

"[Stephanie] Syson says the library has always been a place for her daughter to learn. The seeds just add another lesson.

"For her to see a little pot of dirt and to plant a seed into it, and then 30 days later being able to eat something from it is really exciting for her," she says. "She really enjoys seeing that whole process."

A process that now includes a trip to the local library."

Bibliothèques : Parer les baisses de budget en évaluant l'impact social | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

L'IFLA, Fédération Internationale des Associations de Bibliothèques, parle peut-être « d'une seule voix », selon les mots de sa présidente, mais les situations des bibliothèques du monde ne sont pas égales. Crise économique et restrictions des budgets acculent les établissements, qui doivent donner le change face aux instances financières de leurs gouvernements. De nouveaux arguments émergent, comme le rôle social des bibliothèques.

First Storytime with Apps at the Annapolis Valley Regional Library | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

I’ve done it! I’ve finally used an app at storytime – and it went really well! First off, I have to thank fellow intrepid storytimers, because I used their suggestions and formats. That’s what sharing is all about, isn’t it? I used the Animal Sounds app as suggested by Anne Hicks.

Step inside the new Halifax Central Library | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
There’s a state-of-the-art structure nearing completion in the heart of historic downtown Halifax. The new Halifax Central Library is an impressive five-story building that can’t be missed. Rightly named as one of CNN Style’s “10 eye-popping new buildings you’ll see in 2014,” the design features a glass façade and an impressive cantilever—the overhanging structure jutting off the rooftop—offering expansive views of the city.
