I love the library.
Whether it’s checking out a crazy number of picture books when my boys were small, or taking on the summer reading challenge, or just retreating for an afternoon of quiet writing time (with WiFi!), the library is simply made of awesome. I show my support by vying for the most-library-fines-paid award each year.
Like much of the literacy industry, libraries have dipped into the Web2.0 world with blogs, twitter, Facebook, etc. in an effort to reach library patrons.
My local Palatine Library is a great supporter of local authors as well, and has posted an interview of me on their cool Teen Blog. I’m also hoping to do some kind of blog-collaboration with them in the future. Maybe reviews? Maybe chatting with some teen writers about craft? I’m not sure what Master Librarian Megan and I will dream up, but I’m certain it will be awesome. And fun.
I love the library. Wait, did I say that already?
p.s. the kids are out of school for Thanksgiving week, so my available free time is asymptotically approaching zero. Ink Spells will take a short break and return after the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. blog-friends!
