I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the monthly e-newsletter Programming Librarian and really enjoy receiving it in my inbox. Programming Librarian is put out by the American Library Association’s Public Programs Office and bills itself as “an online resource center for all things related to presenting cultural programs for all types and sizes of libraries.” I learn something new in every issue. Like in the most recent issue, I learned about National Robotics Week in an article written by a teen programmer at a public library. Such a week has interesting potential at my academic library, which serves an undergraduate engineering program. I definitely feel like this site goes beyond the tried-and-true “Women’s History Month” and “Black History Month” program ideas, and recommend it to anyone involved in outreach.
