Casting Webs in a Free Manner
Like free stuff? Like webcasts? Like information? Well apparently School Library Journal (so THAT’s what that SLJ thing in my banner stands for!) is going to have an informative webcast. Here’s the cute little press release for more info. And just in case you wondered, SLJ didn’t ask me to post this stuff. I just figure that press releases make for beautifully easy posts for when one is in another state.
