Chip Kidd will be appearing as the Keynote Speaker for the 2013 WLA Conference, Wednesday, 9:30 am, October 23rd, at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay, WI. The theme this year is: PLAY – CREATE – INNOVATE!
It promises to be a great event for everyone who loves books but one extremely important side-note is that the TOYS FOR TOTS Charity Organization will have Donation boxes that will be set up Tuesday through Friday near the Registration Desk. Please donate new toys for girls and boys ages 12 and under. (Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.)

Do you love books? Well, if so then please be sure to check out this photo of an amazing home library I found that is completely insane. I have always loved those “Bookshelf Ladders” that some libraries have. But could you imagine needing a book on the very top shelf, it would be scary to go up there, ha!
The Seattle Public Library recently launched its 2013 Summer Reading Program by setting a new world record for the longest book domino chain. Here’s the video to prove it and a funny side-note is that the very first book used to set everything off has the title, “Before The Fall”.

Over at the XOJane website there’s an angry Librarian named Claire (we’re only using the word “angry” in a humorous-joking way, she actually seems like a nice sweet girl, ha ha) who recently posted a very interesting article about the importance that Libraries still have today, not only to people who love to read books, but to entire communities as well. She makes the point that when people say, “… everything can be found on the Internet”, is nothing but a lame-ass myth!
She explains how Libraries teach people to read, introduce children to reading, teaches English to non-English-speaking people, teaches Seniors how to use a computer, holds cultural events (Music, Art, Poetry), teaches small business people how to do their taxes, etc….
It’s well thought out, interesting, and it might change your view on a few things. So, please be sure to check it out, just CLICK HERE!
