Second Life Member Interest Group

Currently, we are organizing and recruiting members for a Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL) Interest Group. To begin an interest group, a minimum of 8 people must sign a petition to show their interest. We now have at least the minimum number, and are ready to circulate the petition for signatures.

Eileen Dumas and Victoria Petersen will attend the November Board Meeting of CAL to present the petition and submit a proposal for a Second Life pilot project.

If you know of any more interested people, please have them get in touch with Victoria Petersen, at petersen.victoria (at)

Sustainable Sweepstakes for Kids

Thanks to the Going Green @ Your Library blog - Simon and Schuster has a green sweepstakes going on now for ages 5 - 10. To enter the "I CAN SAVE THE EARTH!" sweepstakes, kids write in and tell how they are working to save the environment. Winners will receive eco-friendly books and have a tree planted in their name by EcoLibris.
