Shelf Talk: A Library Blog

There is no doubt that I write a lot about Seattle and The Seattle Public Library, where I work.  Chances are, I will go on writing about both of these topics again and again, so please forgive me.  Today I wanted to draw your attention, dear reader, to a relatively new blog called Shelf Talk.

 Shelf Talk is The Seattle Public Library’s staff blog.  Library staff (meaning not just librarians) have been contributing posts about books, culture, library resources and services and local interests.  The posts are varied, informative and fun.  It’s another great way for us to serve our patrons near and far.

So what’s it to you?  Well, it’s yet another web resource for your book group, another place to look for new and interesting titles to consider.  Take, for instance, Duan’s post on Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, or this post about reading on local buses, or Jen’s article about parallel stories, or Hannah’s post on books for new moms, or even David Wright’s post on “evil scary children” in literature (sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?)!

Library staff at The Seattle Public Library keep coming up with great ideas that could benefit your book group in brainstorming new books to try.  So sign up for an RSS feed, put us in your list of links, and stop by often.  And please share links for the rest of us of some other stellar library blogs!
