Weekly Round Up (#35)

There’s nothing that ever says a shared link has to be from something published this last week. I like to share anything and everything that I have found interesting, even if it’s a few months, and quite possibly a few years old!

My feature consists of an average of 10 links that I fell in love with, or at least felt the need as an information specialist to share with you, whether you’re just an avid book reader or a librarian who hasn’t seen this particular article yet. Sometimes I post Youtube videos, and maybe I’ll one day be thematic! But for now, please enjoy the following links, and feel free to share your own in the comments down below.

  1. Malawian teen builds windmills all from the knowledge he acquired from the library.
  2. Do books really have the power to heal?
  3. Ishmael Beah speaks at Appalachian State University convocation.
  4. Any tips for Carlisa on life management?
  5. One of my favorite mayors is reading a picture book to a group of 2nd graders:

Work has been relatively busy this past week. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see that I’ve been working on my Banned Books Week display-stuff. I’m kind of excited 🙂

I also started a hashtag for my library #McTavishReads, which I’m kind of excited to launch and hope that the kids will use it during the bookfair, or to take a Shelfie or three. Somethings take time, but I’m hoping with a little publicity and word of mouth I’ll be able to get it rolling nicely by the end of the year 😀

    Ohh these are fun! I wish I could give Carlisa some life tips, but I need some of my own, so now I will just have to stalk her blog looking for someone to give her advice for me to use 😉 That is awesome about the library hashtag! Such a great idea, I hope it goes well. Thanks for sharing these links with us 🙂

Would Love to Hear from You!
