Similar manifestations have occurred in earlier periods. What makes the present moment distinct is the incitement by politicians, including members of the cabinet, the Knesset, and other figures within the Israeli establishment. David Cole Honoré Daumier On Tuesday, Senator Patrick Leahy introduced the revised USA Freedom Act, a bipartisan bill to rein in the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone and Internet records.

The Best Books on Writing, NYC, Animals, and More: A Collaboration with the New York Public Library. By Maria Popova As an enormous lover and patron of public libraries, I was beyond delighted when the fine folks at the New York Public Library asked me to curate a selection of books for their bookstore and gave me free range to do whatever I wished.

The Best Books on Writing, NYC, Animals, and More: A Collaboration with the New York Public Library

My original thought was to do a single reading list around a specific theme, much like I had been doing for the TED bookstore. But my chronic maximalism soon kicked in — the single reading list swelled into four reading lists (wisdom on writing, great reads about New York City, heart- and brain-stirring books on pets and animals, and timeless treats for young readers) and the simple tabletop display became an elaborate installation in the bookstore’s main window.

As the day wound down, attendance at the Readers’ Advisory Tool Kit III was a bit down, though still very decent. Those who lasted the full day of PLA got to hear three well-known librarians suggest more ways to get books into the hands of readers. With her section “Promoting the Backlist,” Georgine Olson of Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library and Regional Center in Fairbanks, Alaska (is the library stationary in landscape to fit the letterhead?)

, spoke to something that concerns me. How do you get all the great old books off the shelves and to readers? Many just sit as readers do not make it past the displays and into the stacks. Part of the answer is that we actually do have to move them – put them on the displays that are catching the readers’ eyes. Booklists are another way to draw attention to older books. Olson also told her rules for making Read-a-Like lists. Saricks regrets that she has not kept notes on every book she has ever read. A Zen Librarian: Bluestem and Monarch Shelf Talkers. Over the summer, I saw an image, I think it was Jon Schu's library blog, that had what I call "shelf talkers.

I hope others might find them as helpful. Here is an image of the shelf talker that got me started. Staff Picks and other Library Articles! Popular Reading Booklists.
