De la publicité sur le papier toilette d'une bibliothèque new-yorkaise

De la publicité sur le papier toilette d'une bibliothèque new-yorkaise | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

La simple présence de publicité dans les bibliothèques publiques suffit à faire grincer des dents. Une institution de Toronto avait d'ailleurs ouvert le bal en imprimant des messages publicitaires au dos de ses bulletins de dates de retour - si, le truc qu'on oublie toujours... Et voila que la bibliothèque de Port Chester-Rye Brook à New-York décide de prêter un support original aux annonceurs : ses rouleaux de papier hygiénique.

Fifty Shades of Grey – E.L. James | Lectrices and the City

Fifty Shades of Grey – E.L. James | Lectrices and the City | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

A force, je me rends compte que les livres que j’ai préférés sont ceux desquels j’ai mis le plus de temps à sortir (Jane Eyre, Salammbô, Twilight, Orgueil et préjugé, etc.). Si ma seule hâte, comme c’est le cas aujourd’hui pour Fifty Shades, est de me plonger dans ma lecture suivante, c’est plutôt mauvais signe.

CBC Books - Emma Thompson's new Peter Rabbit adventure

CBC Books - Emma Thompson's new Peter Rabbit adventure | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Thompson is the author of a new Peter Rabbit adventure, the first authorized sequel to the original stories by Beatrix Potter, first published more than a century ago. "I got a box with Tartan on it and inside there was a couple of half-eaten radishes and a little letter," she told the BBC. "It said he'd heard I was bit cheeky, that he was getting on in years, and he wanted another outing." The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, which is released this week, finds Peter travelling to the Scottish Highlands where he meets a distant relative named Finlay McBurney.

Si le lecteur ne va pas à l’ebook, l’ebook ira à lui ! | IDBOOX | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Comment faire savoir aux lecteurs qu’ils peuvent emprunter des livres numériques dans une bibliothèque ? La question peut sembler complexe mais la réponse  est très simple. Il faut  aller vers les gens. Les bibliothécaires américains avec Overdrive (leur fournisseur de contenus ) ont eu une initiative originale, ils ont créé le Digital bookmobile. Ils ont affrété un gros camion dans lequel ils ont reconstitué une bibliothèque virtuelle pleine de liseuses, de tablettes, d’ordinateurs et de livres numériques et audios !

The 20 Most Beautiful Children’s Books of All Time

The 20 Most Beautiful Children’s Books of All Time | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Ever since Chris Van Allsburg’s birthday last month, we’ve been feeling a surge of appreciation for the plethora of beautiful picture books in our lives. In fact, we think some of the loveliest illustrations we’ve ever seen have been in books (or maybe that’s just the association with a great story talking), so we decided to round up a few of the most beautiful children’s books — at least according to us.

Check out a cake pan? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

A large collection is turning heads at the Great Bend Public Library, and it isn't books. Over the past few months, staff members have been moving a collection of nearly 100 cake pans from a back room to the front of the library. The shiny pans - packaged in large, plastic bags complete with decorating instructions - hang from a bookshelf two rows high and make a clinking noise as visitors browse through the collection.

Would you read novels aimed at 'new adults'?

Would you read novels aimed at 'new adults'? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

The new genre is meant to be for readers aged 14-35 but how likely is it that a 14-year-old reader would enjoy the same story as a 35-year-old? There may be issues with the content – a story set in a university could include adult language and themes that are either inappropriate for a 14 or 15-year old – or, more likely, what one age group finds exciting may simply be boring for the other.

How Kobo and Amazon's new e-readers stack up | Quill & Quire

Today was a big day for device junkies and e-book addicts in Canada and the U.S. At competing press conferences in Toronto and Santa Monica, California, Kobo and Amazon each unveiled a pair of new e-readers and an upgraded tablet device. The timing, not to mention the similarities between the new product offerings, shows how the two companies are competing very much in lockstep.

Over the summer, the soon-to-be-first-grader read 413 books -- most of them borrowed from the New York Public Library's (NYPL) Todt Hill-Westerleigh branch -- making her Staten Island's top children's reader in the NYPL's Summer Reading Program. For that achievement she'll get to see her name on the scoreboard at Yankee Stadium during the Bronx Bomber's Wednesday afternoon game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

There can only be one: Smartphones are the PCs of the future

There can only be one: Smartphones are the PCs of the future | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

In 10 years, tablets computers will be archaic and obsolete. You will look back at the early 2000s, perhaps with an inquisitive child sitting on your knee, and laugh at how you carried around a cumbersome, neck-straining, gorilla arm-inducing, larger-than-pocket-size computer. “It made sense at the time…” Desktops and laptops too, having already begun their slide into outmoded antiquity, will soon be nothing more than dusty cupboard-dwelling relics and museum exhibits.
