Happy New Year, ninjas! We joint chiefs would like to toast your awesome with a glass of bubbly, or sparkling grape juice, or whatever tickles your fancy. *clink*
Every year I like to toast something great from the past year so this year I would like to toast all of you badass storytime ninjas. Without your passion for bringing the best possible storytimes to your communities and communities everywhere, Storytime Underground would not exist. Here’s to you and a most happy and prosperous 2014!
Happy new year, ninjas! In 2013, you made your voices heard at Guerrilla Storytimes all over the country (and Canada!). You proclaimed, “Yes! I AM a storytime expert! And I DO want a community where I can share what I know and learn from others who care about this stuff as much as I do!” You have populated this space, and we joint chiefs couldn’t be more proud of this grassroots literacy army we get to work with. Cheers to you, friends. You inspire me.
For me personally, 2014 looks to be a year of big professional leaps, made possible by the support of ninjas like you. I think you are all the most inspiring, brilliant, extraordinary group of people on the planet, and I can’t wait to see what new ideas you have in store to make your communities more awesome.
2014 is all about you, and I will be there to document every insanely cool thing you do.
