This blog started for the project I am a Librarian! It gave detail the project progress. It will now focus on discussions of the image of the librarian and my interactions with librarians and library staffers as well as cool information that I think could be useful to others.

Children Reading in the Digital Age

There is an interesting article in the New York Times today about children's reading habits and interest in reading on digital devices along with some perceptions of the internet. The part that bothered me the most is that 39% of age 9 to 17 year olds believed that the information on the internet is "always correct." This is shocking. I'd be interested to see the demographics of that study and how much library time those students get. This is exactly one of the lessons learned in school libraries and shows why they are so important.
