How a Book Burning Party Saved a Library

So absolutely worth three minutes of your time.

Nice video, but have you any idea how awful vimeo is on a slow internet connection? I'd get about 2 seconds, then a 10 second pause while more loaded.

Library, library, library. Just say no to the whackos! That's pretty damn smart. :))

That's pretty awesome. Whoever thought of that should get some kind of award. And a big marketing job.

Hey, I notice Charter Shorts isn't on your currently reading list anymore. Does that mean you finished it?

I loved that. Thank you so much for sharing. Gonna send it to a friend to look at.

@Sue Ann: I'm just the embedder, not the uploader, so I don't have any control over format. Sorry you had a tough time with it.

@LG: I thought so.

@Andrew: Yup. Finally! It will show up in one of my monthly reading roundups when I get around to writing it. I really enjoyed it. Every writer should read stories written by kids. It is liberating.

@Michael: I thought it was worth sharing.

Wow. American librarians are media savvy. Check out that funky music and overlay of voices.

Andrew Leon said...

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. :)
I have about 5 times as many kids this year (so far (some kids are still waiting to get into the class, including my son!)), so I'm hoping for a substantially longer book for this year's project.

Fun stuff. ;)

I know that you're up at the cottage just now, but I couldn't resist tagging you on a meme:
