Beginning with Books Coming to an End

If you hadn't heard yet, Beginning with Books will be closing its doors at the end of the month.  Read why here.

With Read365 gone as well, I think it's a good idea for us to get together to discuss how libraries might work to fill the gap they will be leaving.  We may need to direct some efforts to those populations they served so well.  Anyone interested in being part of a committee to talk about these things, leave a comment.  We'll arrange a meeting this fall to talk about some options and approaches.

BwB was a great resource, and the work that they did in the community to help supplement what we as librarians do will be missed. Please keep me posted! - Liz Kostandinu

We will miss Tess's wonderful book talks and sincere enthusiasm for her work. I hope she will remain close to ACLA :)

If you're still starting a committe, I'd be interested in helping out.
