One-minute Critic

Here is a fun little palce to visit from time to time… it’s a site displaying short videos of librarians reviewing and recommending books they have read. All the videos are 60 seconds or less. Finding book recommendations  online is nothing new, but it is fun to see the people behind the review and with the videos it’s fun to see just how much fun they are having producing the 60-second spots.

I  can’t remember where I ran across the site, but I think I read that they started the One-Minute Critic reviews as part of a bigger program and the reponse was big enough that they just kept going. Their site says that the videoa are produced and maintained by the Fort Vancouver Regional Library up in Washington state.

  1. Hi there – thanks for sharing about the One Minute Critic, i really appreciate it! The videos did start as a way to advertise a program, and in a way they still do – the program isn’t until June of this year. What i’m hoping for now is to include a lot more different people from the community talking about books, and see if i can’t get a story in the local paper about it, to get some press for the library and the program, too!
