Weekly Spotlight!

Each week, we reflect on the top articles, blog posts, tweets, news, thoughts, and other tidbits we’ve found interesting or useful. Check out what our writers have spotted this week in library news. Enjoy!


#kidlitwomen is a month-long campaign throughout March, Women’s History Month to promote gender and social equity for children’s book authors. As part of this effort, educator and blogger, Debbie Reese, created a .pdf resource celebrating the children’s book works of indigenous women.

Speaking of women, get a fun peek into the work of female librarians in the 1930s to bring books to underserved areas.

Share what you’re reading these days with OpenLibrary’s new reading log feature. A particularly nice feature are the privacy options for OpenLibrary users to keep reading lists private or share with others.
