Hyperlink Roundup -- June 24th
- A new Barbie has been released and guess what...she can code and develop a video game!
- The importance of mentorship and listening to new employees' ideas (soon to be me!).
- I've become very dedicated to the HBO show Silicon Valley. A recent article came out about who the fictional characters represent in real life Silicon Valley. It's pretty great.
- An interview with Sarah Hepola on her memoir (which I read last fall) and what her parents think about this tell-all book.
- An article on the fancy new New York Public Library branch library. Definitely taking a stand on a new public library (and what it could be). They even allow FOOD.
- Another great (long) article from the woman who created and envisioned Unreal. As you know, I'm slightly obsessed with this show.
- The Knight Foundation awarded some grants for media innovation to libraries. I was so happy to see two projects I knew -- my old boss from NYPL (who is now at Brooklyn) is doing incredible work with incarcerated parents, their children, and literacy, and the other project led by my soon to be colleagues at Penn State.
- I've recently gotten into watching Brooklyn 99, a TV show on Fox about a detective unit in Brooklyn, NYC. It's hilarious and engaging and I cannot stop watching it. I've included the trailer above. CHECK IT OUT (now streaming on Hulu)
