Hello fair readers!
Yes, I know. I *know* my postings have become less frequent. So first on the list of my new favorite things is:
So since I’m one of the last people on the twitter train, I’ll be brief. It’s like a mini-blog. It rocks all socks. You should probably get one. Here’s me: http://twitter.com/leahlibrarian
Second on the list of my favorite things today: good library websites.
This isn’t a new topic for me. I’m consistently baffled by libraries’ refusal to understand that a website is commonly the public’s first impression of a library. Maybe not in all cases, but for the most part. When I hear about a library, what do I do?
That’s right. Like the rest of the world, I Google it.
So when I stumbled upon Kalamazoo Public Library’s new website, I was so pleased.
It rocks all socks, kind of like twitter does.
It fits my list of things-that-make-a-website-awesome criteria:
Seriously, check it out. Play around with it. One of my favorites bits is the reading recommendations blog. So cool. And I would love to hear what the librarians at KPL think! (ahem, Caitlin, ahem 😉 )
So three cheers for Kalamazoo Public Library and their rockin’ new site!! I think many libraries could use their set up as a template for a really impressive web presence.
Well, I’m off to Pitchfork Music Festival for the weekend!
See you on twitter! And have a lovely Saturday.
