I am starting to hate my news feed and my social media sites seem to be filtering my feed to only show the bad stuff.

There is a difference between Africans and African-Americans. Providing literature for one about the other may not be effective in terms of providing #diversity in #collectiondevelopment. Consider the population you serve first. #WeNeedDiverseBooks

"One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back."

Sounds familiar doesn't it. Think you have a clue to how the story ends, then check out "Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass" by Meg Medina.

+Joaquin Byrd have you heard the news?

#JanetJackson   #LasVegas  
Spare a thought for Janet Jackson fans. Seven years have already passed since her last studio LP, 2008's underrated Discipline, and the legendary diva recently shut down rumors that she was embarking on a comeback. Instead, the pop pioneer is devoting her time to charitable causes and married life with billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana. There could, however, be some light at the end of the tunnel. The Las Vegas Sun claims Damita Jo has signed on...

Thinking of holding a family reunion and haven't quite found a few branches from your family tree? Then stop by your local library to use the Ancestry Library Edition to find those long lost relatives today.

You will be able to find census records, military draft cards and so much more. Ask library staff how you can begin your search today.

Thinking about changing my G+ page. I don't like my actual name being out there, along with photo's. I need to use my alias instead.

"There'll be a subscription fee for access to Reading Rainbow's library of books, but it'll be cheaper than buying an iPad. Burton also wants to create a new incarnation for the classroom, complete with resources for teachers. And he wants to provide that for free to the most cash-strapped schools; meeting the $1 million goal should allow them to put the program in 1,500 classrooms for free."

This is something that I would definitely be interested in investing in. Education is very important and early childhood literacy is essential in that goal. Way to go LeVar Burton. 

#LeVarBurton   #ReadingRainbow   #literacy   #library  
Drop everything: LeVar Burton wants to resurrect Reading Rainbow, and he wants it as universally available as possible. So this morning, he launched a Kickstarter, aiming to raise a million dollars to fund the development of a web version. That great swooshing sound you just heard was the entire Internet opening its wallets simultaneously.
