I discovered a couple of blogs that relate to state centers for the book but none that seem to be entirely about or published by state Centers. It appears that New Hampshire is the first Center for the Book to have its very own blog.
Here are some of the related blogs I found:
- Fairfax County Public Library has both a blog and an affiliate Virginia Center for the Book (thanks to Katie Strotman for telling me about this one). Their statement on why and how they moderate comments is very well stated.
- The Indiana State Library has a blog with archives going back June 2004 which includes the Indiana Center for the Book as a category.
- The Oklahoma Department of Libraries has a link on its website to a blog called Reading Oklahoma which had interesting book-related stuff on it, though its connection (if any) to the Oklahoma Center for the Book was not clear.
This blog, like many, is a work in progress. It will evolve and change as technology and the NH Center for the Book do. It is open for comments from anyone (they will be moderated to avoid spam and such) and I hope you will take moment to tell me what you think of this latest experiment in communication.
