Library Media Connection, v26 n6 p22-24 Mar 2008

Active in sports, hobbies, scouting, and other after-school activities, children have a myriad of electronic distractions from the many televisions in their home to Wii[trade mark], Xbox[trade mark], computer games and many more.

Several practical suggestions are provided to assist librarians in making libraries more kid-friendly.
