Now that the news is out about local chapters (HOORAY!!), I wanted to share an example of something your local chapters could organize. Below is the invitation I sent out to contacts in my area for a regional storytime providers (and wannabees) meetup. We had the first one in September and it was so successful we decided to make it a regular thing.
If you’d like to see something like this in your area, contact your local chapter leader. Don’t see a chapter for your state? Maybe you’d like to be the leader!? Send us an email at storytimeunderground at gmail and let us know!
See how much fun we had?!
Here’s the invite. If you’re in the Puget Sound area, we’d love for you to join us!
Storytime Sharing Extravaganza!!
All storytime presenters and storytime presenter wannabees! Pass this on!
Friday, January 22nd, 3:30-5:30 at Moore Branch of Tacoma Public Library
Share, and learn, from other storytime providers in the Puget Sound area. Alex, from Pierce County, will share ways to effectively delivery early literacy tips in storytime. Bring something for an activity showcase (optional) and be prepared to have a lot of fun! Light refreshments will be provided.
Please let me know if you plan to attend. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 1 to 3 of your favorite artists, albums, rhymes, or songs to use in storytime. I’ll compile suggestions for another take home list.
