  1. Amy,
    I think this is a terrific idea- a really good idea. The former paper version of Good Ideas was good, but doing it electronically makes a lot of sense. Saves paper, and it will be searchable by tags…..nice going.

  2. This is not something that I have tried but there is a competition every year for this – Trick out your truck! Your library truck that is. I think this would be a great way to engage some teen boys and cool gurls at a library. Take an ailing library cart and trick it out with lights, decorations, fur, fangs, skulls, flowers, clouds fairies, whatever!
