Coolest Things Strikes Again!

So, we’re a little behind on our reading.




After much catching up, here are just a few things we want to call out this week:


Abby wrote about how asking her staff to do a lap around the children’s area made her space more welcoming and secure AND helped them provide better customer service. Go, Abby!


We LOVE the awards that Bryce made for her staff, recognizing them for all the everyday aches and pains and calling them out for small acts of excellence. Go borrow some of hers and then steals ours while you’re at it.


Are you looking for new material for your fall-themed storytimes? OF COURSE Jbrary has you covered with a round-up of their favorite fall and Halloween songs and rhymes.


Have we pointed out one of our new favorite blogs, Jen in the Library? No? Silly us.  If you’re getting your feet wet with media mentoring and using apps in storytime, her blog is a godsend. She has details on what apps and ebooks she’s using, how she used them, and how they were received.


Did you know that joint chief Holly is working on a guide for Demco on programming with Meeperbots? Don’t worry, you can get a preview of a Battle Bots program here.


Lisa Mulvenna made these adorable foam figures to go with The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka-Dot Pants. They are the best!
