The best blogs

Every year Salem Press names it’s top library blogs of the year for all the fields above.  This year the fabulous In the Library with the Lead Pipe is the overall winner.  I’m a little in love with this blog and yep, I’m going to all it a deserving winner!  In other highlights (actually every one of the nominated blogs is a highlight to be fair) one of my absolute fave is School Librarian Blog of the year.  Jennifer LaGarde is all kinds of awesome.  Her musings on school librarianship give me much to mull over, process and then try to put into action in my daily library life.  I am a huge admirer.  Here she is delivering a keynote recently.  I’m also delighted to note that Cathy Nelson and her professional thoughts was the highly commended blog in this category.  If you are looking for awesomeness in school library blogging these guys are the bomb!  Add them to your RSS feeds and get inspired.

Here is the full list of award winners.  The blog centre will take you to lists of blogs of many types where you find find lots of inspiration.

    I agree Bridget that Jennifer LaGarde is awesome. Currently I am involved with her Level Up Book Club, which deals with gamification and is fascinating. I am going to look into the other blogs, thanks for the recommendations.
