STORYTIMES ON THE FLY

From the ALSC blog: "Picture this:  you’re getting settled in for your morning,  maybe getting a cup of coffee, checking emails, going through mail when the message comes in:  someone has called in and now you are going to have to fill in for storytime. With fifteen minutes notice.  And they haven’t gathered their materials together in one place... These moments can be stressful and overwhelming, especially for people who like to be prepared. How do you find a theme, pull books, flannels, music, all in a matter of minutes?"

BOARD BOOK ORGANIZATION

From Youth Services Shout-Out: "Do you get a sense of dread when a parent seeks a very specific board book—and you have to locate it amid the often unorganized or random collection at your library? I don’t anymore, since my library reorganized and labeled our board book collection about a year ago, and our community and staff have been enjoying the benefits ever since..."

FOR YOUR RADAR

Series books for elementary students are always in demand, and keeping up can be a challenge. Luckily, the Teen Librarian Toolbox is here with a curated list of recent series books for younger readers. Enjoy!
