I know there have been a lot of questions about Biblioguides.
Sarah Kim and Tanya Arnold are going to do a live Zoom meeting just for WEH members on March 11th at 1:00 pm Pacific time. This will be a perfect chance to ask questions and have them walk you through the program. I'll be linking it here and it will also be linked on the WEH landing page in the site.
If you sign up by tonight, you'll have a full 30 days to test it out for free. After tonight, you'll have a 7 day free trial. Use this link to help support WEH: https://www.biblioguides.com/membership/signup/weh/
We are in the very early stages of adding WEH books and tagging them, so what you see now isn't a complete picture. But you will be able to get an idea of its searchable features.
And there is already a TON of wonderful resources already in place from other databases of books! I can hardly wait to start going through them and tagging them with WEH tags, i.e., by monthly rotation.
And yes---my current Libraries of Hope site is not going away.
If you missed the prior informational videos about the WEH/Biblioguides partnership, I've linked them here for you:

Podcast #203: Is Biblioguides Worth My $0.20 a Day?
The new Month 7 books are now in the store.
Imaginative includes a sampler of stories from Arabian Nights (warning: they are not all warm and fuzzy) plus tales from Native America.
Epic and Legendary Heroes: I included several options of the song of Hiawatha. He was a real person. You'll find a short, intro story, a version with more narrative prose and then Longfellow's poem itself. He is an inspiring figure.
Great Lives: Mostly includes stories of lives from 19th Century America, but you will also find stories that take place in Arabia and Muslim countries.
My World Story Book: It was hard to find stories from this region! There were only a few in Arthur Mee, so I had to pull stories in from a number of sources. It is a mixture of 19th century America and stories that relate to Islam in some way.
It looks like the cat is out of the bag! I am very excited to introduce our new Libraries of Hope website.
As always, it's a work in progress, but your suggestions for improvement will be very helpful as we move forward in its creation.
Please take a few minutes to watch this orientation video. And then bring your ideas and suggestions to this thread or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I do hope you will like what you see!
