I am so excited to share this awesome grant idea with you all! My good friend and coworker was recently told she wouldn’t have a job as of February 1st due to our library district losing in the election for a tax initiative (don’t worry guys, she already found a new job :)). Because of this two of our smaller libraries had to close, leaving our town to only 3 libraries. So, needless to say, she had to pass along some of the projects she was working on and I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing grant she was awarded. She had the great idea to create what she calls “Storytime To Go” And that’s exactly what it is. It will be 15 kits (12 themed & 3 bilingual) that are put together with books, flannels, songs, rhymes etc for patrons to be able to check out and take home with them. But here is the best part, there will also be a digital version of someone (me among other children’s librarians) doing the actual storytime and the patron will be able to download it. How neat is that?! I am so so sad to see her go, but very excited to be able to carry out her wonderful idea. I will update you all when things get moving along a little bit more.
