Pop Goes the Library

Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, John Klima, Carlie Webber, Karen Corday, and Eli Neiburger. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.


Totally Wired = Totally Necessary

Anastasia Goodstein of YPulse fame strikes again with Totally Wired, a bloggy complement to her forthcoming book of the same name (which is at the top of my 2007 shopping list). The subtitle of both blog & book is "What Teens and Tweens are Really Up To Online", and boy, does it deliver the goods:

What I like so much about Anastasia's blogs is that she puts everything she writes about into a clear, broader context (essential for reaching her adult audience), she knows her audience isn't just marketers (note plenty of librarian-friendly content), and although she is generally quite sanguine about teens & tweens, she isn't afraid to call them out on their excesses when she sees them.

Attention, teachers, parents, librarians, guidance counsellors, and group home staff: Totally Wired is a must read in every way.
