I had trouble getting a handle on how a blog could be helpful in the middle school library setting. I visited GoogleBlog at http://blogsearch.google.com and found the blog for Markham Middle School Library. The link for this blog is http://markhamlibrary.blogspot.com. The purpose of the blog is to support curriculum and instruction programs at the middle school. It is a fabulous site that clearly show just how important a blog can be. On this site, there is announcements for upcoming technology training, book reviews and recommendations, school news, and lesson plans, just to name a few of the features. Now, I have a much better idea of how to use a blog for a middle school library. Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think!
