Today I led a webcast for mostly public librarians in Jacksonville, Florida. We talked about 4 ways to serve youth in the library: developmental changes, librarian competency skills, customer service tips, and social media strategies. From improving our circulation procedures to polishing our technology skills, we could all (school libraries included) use some reminders about how we can best serve our youth. What about you? What's on your improvement plan? How can we best serve our youth? Read on for resources to take you in the right direction.Read More →

Today is Multicultural Children's Book Day
It's Multicultural Children's Book Day (MCCBD), and we are thrilled to help sponsor the efforts behind it. The mission of MCCBD is to not only raise awareness for the kid's books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries. Since JLG is all about getting the best books into the hands of readers and inspiring and enabling lifelong reading and learning, it's a perfect match. This year we are sponsoring the Classroom Reading Challenge. Teachers and students around the country will be involved in this initiative to include more diverse books into their classroom libraries and to encourage kids to broaden their worlds through these stories. To learn more about the Challenge and MCCBD visit http://multiculturalchildrensbookday.com or participate in the conversation on social media. #ReadYourWorldRead More →
