I just got home from a whole day helping my Cook County IL fifth grader and his classmates travel back in time to Colonial Williamsburg.
Our “trip” reminded me to remind all of you that the Williamsburg Regional Library has one of the most useful websites when it comes to helping adult leisure readers. And you can use it to help leisure readers all over the country.
Click here to check out hundreds of adult reading lists, here to see their quarterly TV show about reading (yes, they are so good at this that they are local TV stars) or here for the no longer updated [but still full of thousands of suggestions you can use right now] Blogging for a Good Book.
You don’t have to travel back to Colonial times, or even make it to modern day VA to learn something from Williamsburg. The staff there go out of their way to provide superior service to leisure readers near and far.
