I've been blog stalking lately, and found some goodies to share with you!
First, the Texas Association of School Librarians gave the elementary library blog of the year award to Tanglewood Elementary Library in Fort Worth, Texas. Her blog is great, and here's an idea you can use on your own library website or blog....WIDGETS!
Widgets provide automatically updated content to keep your website or blog lively. I've added the Reading Rockets widget to my school library blog. It provides a reading tip of the day to the parents who visit you online. Here is the embed code:
If you use the Accelerated Reader program, you can grab their widget for updated AR statistics for your school.
I want to keep our school library blog updated and relevant to families, and I think widgets will help make that happen.
Do you have any ways to engage families on YOUR library website or blog?
