5 Minute Librarian is a frequently updated blog founded by public librarian Jess Bacon that may appeal to librarians, educators, and anyone who works closely with young readers. Authored by a team of librarians, 5 Minute Librarian's tagline is "All you need to know in all the time you have." In keeping with this mission, this blog offers helpful tips and ideas related to collection development, library programming, marketing, and more through a series of concise blog posts. Recent blog posts have included "14 Ways Librarians Can Help Immigrant Children and Families," "8 Creative Book Club Ideas," and "10 Insider Secrets Librarians Only Tell Their Friends with Kids." Visitors can browse pasts posts by tags including "Librarian 101," "Time-Savers," and "Ready to Go Book Displays." One highlight of this blog is Spoilers, Sweetie, which offers helpful synopses (and yes, spoilers) of books that have been selected for awards, including the Man Booker Prize, the Newberry Medal, and the Caldecott Medal.
