Ann Arbor Wins It All
I bet you didn't even know that the ALA gave out awards for the best library websites around, didja? Well they do. And it looks like the Ann Arbor District Library got the prize this year. Of course it's all so very esthetically pleasing. All that taupe. The clean lines. The white spaces. A quick scan, however, shows something missing. Something somewhat important. Where's the children's site? Where, for that matter, is the teen site? They list plenty of events for kids and teens, true. But where are their websites? Is ALA informing us that we can all ditch our children/YA pages now and move on to more feng shui-ish layouts? Apparently so.
