Slideshare wants you to tell a story in thirty – that’s 30 – slides.

C’mon librarians – cowboy up – let’s do what we do best.

You could even do a teen program about this – or a computer class with this as the final project!

More Cool Stuff From ALA Public Programs

I received a neat flier from ALA Public Programs.  They have many grants coming up that are really fabulous and available to most library types.  Check them out:

Picturing America
Recipients gain a collection of 20 laminated, double-sided posters depicting 40 works of American art, a 125-page resource book, and a project-based website with curriculum resources.

We the People Bookshelf on “Picturing America”
The list of books received can be found by clicking here.  My library won another bookshelf from NEH and it has proven to be a great resource for us!

Great Stories CLUB
The Great Stories CLUB “is a reading and discussion program designed to reach underserved, troubled teen populations through books that are relevant to their lives.

Craft Recipes Galore

Phew.  It’s been a day.  And a half.  Seriously.

Anyways, I found a plethora of kid activity info on this website: http://www.makeplaydough.com/

That’s right.  I said plethora.  The site is cluttered with ads, but ya gotta pay the bills somehow, I guess.  The recipes for different craft things, from play dough to goop to chalk, are worth wading through ads for.
