Scottish artist Katie Paterson has launched a 100-year artwork - Future Library - Framtidsbiblioteket - for the city of Oslo in Norway. A thousand trees have been planted in Nordmarka, a forest just outside Oslo, which will supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished, until 2114.
A l’occasion d’une balade à Etretat, j’ai découvert une opération mise en place par la médiathèque départementale de Seine-Maritime : Lire à la plage. Comme l’indique le nom de l’opération, il s’agit d’une opération de lecture hors les murs pour les touristes et autres vacanciers qui fréquentent les plages de la Seine maritime. ...
The May 15, 1960 issue of Library Journal reviewed a new work by a debut author, Harper Lee. Her To Kill a Mockingbird was released on July 11 of that year and our reviewer, librarian Robert W. Henderson, described it as “A gripping, timely story. Strongly recommended for all libraries.” (See below for the full review.) Lee’s newest book, Go Set a Watchman, will be released July 14.
Some of the children who come call this ‘train school’, but nobody here knows how to operate a locomotive – even if there are a few of them around. And it’s not a ‘school’ in the proper sense of the word, but there is a lot of learning going on...
On a recent visit to the Sacramento library, the high number of homeless patrons I saw there surprised me. Seeing them in that quiet space, consumed by traditional media, I was struck by the difference between them and most of society with its 24/7 connection to streaming digital media. I began this project to take myself out of my own patterns and habits, to change my perspective, to observe, to listen, to understand, and to share this place of quiet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re a history nerd and you’ve spent any time whatsoever online, you’ve probably familiar with Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant comics. Because jokes about Lord Byron and Liszt and the Brontë sisters’ questionable taste in men are great, and hers in particular are hilarious.
Summertime for kids means playing outdoors, slurping a melting popsicle, and running through sprinklers. If you'd like it to include some relaxing reading in the shade, look no further.

Quelques rares élèves profiteront de cet élan décoratif durant l’été, mais les enseignants tablent surtout sur un effet de surprise pour la rentrée. La Biloxi Junior High School du Mississippi réserve en effet un fameux coup aux étudiants. Tout un groupe d’enseignants et de bénévoles s’est lancé dans une refonte des couloirs de l’établissement.
