Are you currently reading a book that you want others to know about?  Or, do you already write book reviews for various reasons? Might you consider sharing your reviews with others in Central Minnesota?

CMLE Board Member, Maria Burnham, Sauk Rapids-Rice Library Media Specialist, suggested including book reviews in our current communication streams. We thought this was a wonderful idea!

Our Goal: Over the next six months, we would like to like to have 20 book reviews starting this November going through April of next year.

We’ll need your help!!!

  1. First, we want to come up with a catchy name for this series. It will appear in the title each time a book review is being posted. Place your suggestion(s) in the comment section below or send us an email by next Thursday, October 31st. The winning suggestion will receive public kudos and a reward.
  2. Maria will be kicking off our first post next week. You could be one of the additional 19 CMLE book reviewers. To share your notes with library colleagues, across Central Minnesota, simply email our office ( place “Book Review” in the subject heading.

TIP:  If you are already reviewing books and blogging about them for your students, it would be easy to send us a copy for this series.
