Let’s be honest: it’s kind of amazing to think Pop Goes the Library: Using Pop Culture to Connect with Your Whole Community was published in 2008. 2008! And now it’s 2013.
While we were writing the book, we were very aware that one of the risks of writing about pop culture is pop culture, itself. It’s always changing! That’s one reason that we didn’t concentrate much on then-current pop culture, keeping our focus on how libraries can use pop culture in all sorts of ways, from collection building to marketing to outreach to programming.
