Here at Spooky Librarians, we are all about books, and we are also all about squirrels. (We're all about a lot of things.) It's not surprising that we love this contest from Powell's Books, asking for a name for their squirrel character!

Speaking of books, there is talk that the Newbery award winners can be "too challenging" for kids these days. Oh, whatever, people.

The media is dying. Have you heard? Now there's a Twitter feed that tracks the layoffs and the upheavals in real time.

The history of Illinois corruption makes for some fascinating reading, regardless of your political leanings. (Full disclosure: I am related to the Madigans, in a distant sort of way. I've only met them at weddings and funerals and whatnot.)

From Cassandra: The top ten archaeological finds of 2008.

And finally, here's some more library design porn for those of us who love looking at library architecture. These have a more modernist bent.
