Library Attack (a new to me blog), deconstructs my post and Jenny Levine’s comments. I’m glad Jenny comnmented on the post instead of ignoring it. She’s right. Don’t like gaming? Don’t do gaming. I say stuff like that all of the time.
That said, that doesn’t mean I won’t post what I think about the topic. And, I love Jenny. Always have. She’s one of the smartest people I have ever met. Truly and honestly. We go way back. My being against video games is not me being against Jenny. Maybe I just don’t “get it”.
But maybe (just maybe) I’m onto something here. When will it end? When will librarians just stop trying to be the cool kids with the cool toys?
Why do we have to lure kids into the library with “candy”? Shouldn’t good literature be good enough? And, if it’s not enough, why? Maybe in some respects, I’m old school. Maybe that’s a good thing.
