Karen Kleckner, Deerfield Public Library, and Rebecca Vnuk, Glen Ellyn Public Library gave an entertaining and informative program on using blogs to stay on top of books being published and to help provide readers’ advisory service.
Also, discussed was how to share this information with customers. Don’t be afraid to link to blogs from you library website.
The two have started their own blog, to help librarians with readalikes for those popular titles which you can’t keep on the shelf. Check out shelfrenewal.com for their blog, and use their blogroll as a great way to get started on knowing what blogs you should read to keep up with all the book and publishing news.
