So, how exciting to discover that there is a group called Flannel Friday, that allows youth services librarians to share their super-cool, creative, beautiful ideas for flannel boards. You might want to get right in there and share, or you might want to check it out for an extra burst of inspiration every Friday! Take a peek.
It's nice because if I'm at home and see a flannel I think would be fun or something I think we ought to have at work I don't have to mess with an e-mail and a link, I just pin it to my board. Then I can find it again easily to show people at work...It's way nicer than bookmarking
something...often I get lost in the list because I can't quite remember what the bookmark was called, plus I can't get to them at work. I can troll through other people's pinboards for inspiration and sometimes a pin will lead back to a blog I want to follow or a website that has stuff I want. And some boards are collaborative where several people can post things to them...it might be a good tool for a department or a library system to share ideas visually amongst their members.
Oooh! Great idea! I'm not sure we should do this as a system, or if you should all just do this individually and share with each other informally, but it sure seems like it has some terrific potential. What do you think??
