Lecteur vorace : 5 trucs pour lire 100 livres en une année | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

On ne le dira jamais assez : la taille compte, mais pas trop. Et l’on parle bien de la taille de sa bibliothèque. Pour qui a décidé en 2017 de battre des records, en voici un qui s’annonce tout à fait réalisable : lire 100 livres sur l’ensemble de l’année. Cela exige un peu d’organisation et de volonté. Celle de laisser tomber les mauvais livres.

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
Since the last of Canada’s Indian residential schools closed in 1996, the nation has been attempting to shape a response to the legacy of abuse that the residential school system—which removed native children from their homes and families—inflicted on its Indigenous Peoples. Saskatoon Public Library (SPL), Saskatchewan, has become the first public library to incorporate a space permanently dedicated to truth and reconciliation. On November 21 SPL’s Frances Morrison Central Library opened the Read for Reconciliation reading area, which includes a full set of the reports compiled by the TRC over five years, plus a variety of books about Canada’s history of residential schools, as well as an extensive reading list on the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada on its homepage.

Support Math Readiness Through Music

Support Math Readiness Through Music | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Music is one of the first ways children experience math. Without thinking, our bodies react to music. When we hear music, we rock our babies, clap along, and even look toward the source of the sound. These responses are reactions to musical elements such as steady beat, rhythm, and melody, all of which reflect mathematical concepts.
