Congrats to St. Louis Public Library!

The winners of the MO BOOK CHALLENGE were awarded their trophy at the table talk session about the contest at the MO LIB Conference.  Here are two of SLPL's team captains, Kara Kreckeler and Terra Sleep accepting the trophy.

Annie Moots and Christa Van Herreweghe spent their time at the conference recruiting new teams so look for updates in this space.


How's the reading going for the folks at STLCC? 
I'm so glad you asked that question. 
 I'll be happy to tell you....

Wild Card Categories for our NEW season

Last year's survey gave us PLENTY of suggestions for wild card categories so we are choosing from that list again. We also received a few new ideas so drop a line anytime if you think of something to add to the list.

For your 2014/2015 season, our wildcard cateogries will be:
1. Books over 100 years old (copyright, obviously not the actual copy of the book).
2. Team members who have worked at the institution for at least 5 years.
3. Books told from an animals perspective.
