I believe libraries are amazing places for education, discovery, entertainment, and exploration. This is a place where I post my presentations, images, discussion topics, opinions, and videos about libraries. Please feel free to comment and create a conversation about what make libraries great!
The Mayor of Columbia, SC, Bob Coble, stopped by at a recent reception for author, Frank Baker. It was a wonderful event and approximately 60 people attended. Frank's book, "Coming Distractions: Questioning Movies," provides "young readers the tools they need to evaluate the barrage of media messages that reach them every day. Value assumptions, product placements, and cues to act are embedded in each media message. This fun series embraces media as entertaining and useful but also puts readers in a position of strength, as they learn a systematic way to question pop culture and to recognize how influential media messages are."
