BBW in SL

Banned Books Week is coming up: Sept. 29th through October 6th and this year you can celebrate your right to read at your local library AND on SL (and teen SL). Here’s a bit from the ALA OIF announcement made yesterday.

Second Life/Teen Second Life:
To tie in with this year’s theme of “Aye, mateys…celebrate your freedom t’ read!,” ALA has created a “Pirate Paradise” in Second Life (SL), a 3D virtual world complete with pirate ship and a wharf with interactive displays on banned books. ALA Banned Books Week graphics will be used to create virtual posters, displays and T-shirts that can be worn by Second Life avatars. The Topeka and Shawnee County (Kan.) Public Library has loaned a virtual display on banned books they created for their National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Big Read initiative. All ALA Second Life activities will take place on ALA Arts InfoIsland.

I will have to get my avatar on and fly on over to InfoIsland to check this out. Of course, if you read my earlier post, I may have to avoid walls.  Also, by the time I get my pirate gear in order, BBW will likely be over.
