Weekly Roundup!

Each week, we reflect on the top articles, blog posts, tweets, news, thoughts, and other tidbits we’ve found interesting or useful. Enjoy!


As a Baltimoreon, I couldn’t be happier about this announcement. Carla Hayden, the CEO of Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library system, has been confirmed by the Senate to become the 14th Librarian of Congress. And the first woman and the first African-American. Congratulations, Carla!


If you’ve been living in the world this week, you’ve probably seen a lot of (or been playing yourself) Pokemon Go. But how does it relate to libraries? For the aspiring programmer, Galaxybookjockey has a comprehensive post on the app, libraries, and putting them together.
