Thing Ten!!!!!!!!!

Should we feel bad that Morton Grove is on the list of best library websites and Skokie isn't?

I downloaded an ebook from NetLibrary and listened to it on my computer. Soon I will listen to an ebook from Overdrive on the MP3 player Santa brings me.

Google Docs Rocks

I didn't realize Google had soooo many products. I checked out all of them.

Thanks for your "radical trust", Ten Things Team.

It's delightful, It's de-lovely, It's!

The Digital Social Scene

I now belong to My Space and Facebook, with completely new identities. These social networking sites are not for me -- And that goes for Eons, too. I do, however, like Library Thing which will perhaps be used by SPL.

Note: All social networking sites are banned in the Niles Township high schools.


With The Library Success Wiki, I found and subscribed to Charlotte and Mecklenburg's Library Loft podcasts with news, programs, and commentary created by and for teens. The 10 Things @ SPL is modeled after the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County's 2.0 program for their staff--only I think all finishing staff recieved an MP3 player.I also subscribed to podcasts of two great radio programs: WGN's Extension 720 with Milt Rosenberg and This is Hell,broadcast live on WNUR, Northwestern University's radio station.

Thanks to Flickr, I can now say hello in many languages.

I found an email from CAA dated August 4, 2006 in which she says she was surprised that Flickr was being used for Library photos, instead of putting them on our our own website. Has our philosophy changed?
