Rez. in: JASIST 56(2005) no.14, S.1555-155639 (K. Reuter): "Blowers and Bryan open their book with the image of the Internet as "a pied piper luring children away from books" (p. xiii), nicely capturing the struggle that some children's librarians face to keep their libraries vital and appealing to today's increasingly technologically savvy children. Part idea book, part primer an Web production, Weaving a Library Web encourages and supports children's librarians in expanding their children's services to the Web, "to bring the library to children, and to bring children into the library" (p. xiii). Blowers and Bryan's guidance grows out of their own work an a family of highly appealing and well-received Web sites for children through the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County in North Carolina. Though a number of guides already exist for offering library services online and for creating appropriate online services for children, the au thors note that their book is the first to combine these two areas to focus an the development of library service Web sites for children. The book is organized into eight chapters that can be read through for an overview of the Web production process or can be used individually as stand-alone references. The first half of the book offers ideas for and general principles of Web design for children, and the second half provides hands-on advice for undertaking a Web project. Blowers and Bryan cover each topic thoughtfully in a collegial, often breezy tone. . . .
Finally, this book suffers from a perennial problem of books that discuss the Web: The innovative Web sites mentioned early in the book will become quickly outdated. A Web site would be a natural extension to this book, providing a forum for the authors to include recommended further reading as well as a link to additional cutting-edge examples of Web sites for children. In the end, Weaving a Library Web will be an indispensable onestop guide for the children's public librarian faced for the first time with the complicated process of developing online services for children. For those outside this core audience, this book may offer some food for thought but will not be the same comprehensive resource."
