The Experiments Continue

All part of Seattle Public Library’s planned outreach of millennials, who have expressed interest in creative writing classes. Genius,

"When Punk the Capital filmmaker James Schneider approached D.C. Public Library about starting a punk-rock archive, he discovered that the library was already a step ahead of him. The D.C. Punk Archive is officially coming together at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library."



-

Ally Schweitzer in her Bandwith piece about the coolest example of library outreach I’ve heard of in ages. Were you a punk rocker in D.C.? Do you have flyers, pins, T-shirts, posters, and other memorabilia in your closet? Share it in the spirit of community.

Quoth Cynthia Connolly, the beautiful mind and eyes behind the seminal book Banned in D.C.:

“Any subculture thrives on the passion of the people who are involved, and those little details are important.”



Happily, heartily, exuberantly, we welcome Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial to the Cloud. Spain’s second largest publisher (but first in terms of ebook volume), PRHGE recently acquired the trade list of competitor Santillana, enriching an already best-seller-heavy catalog perfect for libraries catering to Hispanics and the growing number of non-Hispanic Spanish speakers in the United States.
A recent profile in Publishers Weekly offered valuable collection development advice. According to the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking (aka REFORMA), now more than ever diverse materials are needed to accommodate Spanish speakers, read: Spanish and English, and beyond self-help and immigration titles.
Here’s Edward Benitez, a member of REFORMA and the director of U.S. Spanish Language Sales for Penguin Random House:

"Latinos still look for books on immigration and how-to books but they also want to read the classics and the latest Spanish translations of authors like Gillian Flynn and John Green. We will continue do well with books from Gabriel García Márquez and Isabel Allende. But we are also doing very well with books such as The Faults in Our Stars.”

And there you have it. Check CAT for Core Backlist.

"In many ways, the last twelve years were not really about, hey, let’s talk about some books I’ve been reading. It was more about, how does one think through how one lives on the planet. How do you synthesize ideas, how do you follow a thought through centuries of other people’s thoughts."
