Red Dot SHORTLIST for 2012-2013 -- at last.....

Okay, here are the shortlists.  

Thanks to Lisa Patton, Kate Brundage, and Kim Klein who sat with me last Friday evening and hashed these out -- and the Australian contingent who advised via email.  Very useful!  (And if you still have complaints about the national balance, just volunteer to be on the committee next year.....)

The lists are stored on our ISLN GoodReads shelves.


NB:  Two books have two titles (in two different countries) -- same text!

Add to our YouTube playlist(s)

Ron Starker in the SAS Middle School made some very fun videos with his students to introduce the library.

I've put links to them on an ISLN YouTube playlist called "School Library intro videos". The videos introduce basic library organization, genres, and how-to use Destiny/Quest to find books.

If anyone else has videos they've created and want to share, send me the link and I'll put them on a playlist.  Maybe we'll be able to have some short videos of Hands on Literacy moments that we can upload after the conference.  Just a new place for us to share things we've created.
