Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Super-Charged Storytimes

flash of bright white lightening in a  dark purple sky

Storytimes!  They are the bread-and-butter of what we do as youth services librarians.  They are an important tool for sharing early literacy information and skills with kids and parents, they are a ton of fun, and most libraries have one. 

Now, thanks to the Institute for Museum and Library Services and OCLC, there is a chance to take a course, completely self-paced, absolutely free, about ways to Super-Charge Storytimes.  Taking this course will allow you to examine ways to make your storytime more intentional and more exciting!

Saroj Ghoting, one of the lead instructors, came to IFLS-land a few years back to give a well-received and inspiring workshop.  Now's your chance to get more inspiration and information to help make your storytimes effective and amazing.

If you would love to have a group of people from the area to take this course together and get together now and then to talk about it, please let me know.  I'm considering trying to coordinate something like that.
