Is It Any Good?

Does each of your family members have his or her own library card? Do you find it difficult to remember when each child's books are due? Would you like a list of every child's overdues? Would you like to know when an item is on hold and ready for pickup? Then check out the Library Elf demo on the site to see if it's for you. You may find that Library Elf will be your new best friend!

Library Elf, based in Vancouver, Canada, cares about privacy, too. There's a lengthy FAQ about it, and potential users should be sure to read it carefully. Pay close attention to the section about receiving your Library Elf report via RSS newsfeed rather than by email. Email is preferred for several reasons.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
